This weekend after a culmination of nearly a year's training, I completed my first ever marathon - and indeed ultramarathon - race at Endure24 Reading. A 24 hour running race which consists of running as many 5 mile, hilly trail loops as you can, Endure24 was my first ever long distance race, and I think I've got the bug!
During my training for Endure24 I started to pick up small but frustrating problems with my body - painful hip flexors and quads, a Mortons Neuroma, and struggling to progress further than about 8 miles. I had a gait and running analysis done to find out what I was doing wrong, and running re-education sessions to learn how to run properly!
