It’s 12 days before the marathon and who needs new tips now?? You’ve been training, working up your miles, figuring out your food, learning from either your own or others past experiences. Trying something new this close to the marathon could be a bad idea. Trying something new on race day is definitely a bad idea.
You’re body has been through a lot with training, pounding out the miles, building strength and stamina. Now is a great time to get some additional care if you haven’t already been doing so. Time to see a chiropractor. You’ve put a lot of stress on your joints, especially your feet. While most people think about chiropractic for their back, actually getting your feet adjusted can help you body enormously. If the bones in your feet aren’t moving properly, neither will the rest of you.
This would be a great week to take care of this as you’re easing off your training and letting your body heal a bit before race day. By doing it this week you will also have some time to adjust to the changes.
While there are a great deal of chiropractic approaches, my personal preference is for non-force adjusting. It’s easy on the body and provides the needed correction. Sometimes some more vigorous techniques are needed but they can still be done gently to promote the best outcome.
Add the final touch to your training and have a great race!!
