An exercise programme using the Copenhagen Adduction exercise increases hip adduction strength, a key risk factor for groin injuries. First published in June of 2018 in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, the researchers found that with their hip adduction exercise that they could reduce risk factors for groin problems in footballers.

A treadmill has been doing the rounds at various major World Marathon Races following Kipchoge’s World Record time of 2:01:39. A nice test to see how long you could run at his speed (13 mph/21 kmph) before falling off the treadmill.

To put his record into context he ran roughly the equivalent of eight 14-minute Park-runs back to back!
Congratulations to our great physio Eimear Murphy who completed the Dublin marathon last weekend.
A brilliant run and fantastic time.
I believe Gráinne and Mary will be starting their training soon and are keen to join you next year for Dublin Marathon 2019.
