At Walk Right Podiatry we are privileged to see a wide range of people of all ages and abilities, some of our patients really push themselves to the limit with fitness which can put a lot of pressure on the feet. One of our brilliant patients this month is Louisa who completed the London Marathon in April this year!
The London Marathon was first held in 1981 and has been held every year since; it is part of the ‘World Marathon Majors’ and a gruelling 26.2 miles long.
Building a solid training base is key for attempting to complete a Marathon which Louisa did, increasing her mileage and endurance over the weeks and months leading up to the marathon.
We were able to help with footwear advice, callus reduction and most importantly blister prevention advice which is so crucial when running such a long distance.
As well as managing to reach her goal Louise also raised an amazing £2,000 for Melanoma UK. Well done Lousia for setting your goal and achieving your dream of completing the London Marathon!
