Many people are eager to participate in the marathon race. Even if the goal is to participate in a marathon, it takes a lot of hard work and practice before participating in such sports to accomplish it. It is also very important to complete the marathon without any injury. Adequate preparation is necessary before running in such a competition. If this preparation is not done, there is a possibility of straining the muscles and joints of the foot. In general, about 70 percent of people suffer from various types of injuries due to not doing proper exercise, not using proper footwear and putting too much stress on the body.
for joint preparation
It is important to practice a few days before rather than running straight on the day of the marathon. Running a marathon requires strong knees and toes. Running increases the risk of knee injury. To avoid this risk, it is necessary to strengthen the waist by exercising. Any runner should train for at least 3 to 4 months. Test how far you can already run. For example, if a runner is participating in a 21 km race, he would have already attempted to run 21 km.

when choosing running shoes
Running shoes are very important and even if you do not pay proper attention to choosing these shoes, there is still a risk of foot injury. When choosing shoes, make sure they provide the support your feet need. Expensive and highly advertised shoes are not necessarily beneficial for you.
It is necessary to know in advance what should be the position or posture of the body while running in the marathon. It will be beneficial to keep learning about it and improving it from time to time in running practice. Especially in the later stages of a race, fatigue sets in, your body stiffens, and runners change their posture. This takes its toll on the joints which are already over-stressed and prone to injury. Whether you feel some tension in your shoulders, back, or arms, it’s important to seek advice to see if you need to improve your running posture.
vigilance after marathon
After running for a long time in a marathon, the body temperature rises. So you feel very hot. In such a situation, bathing with hot and cold water helps in stabilizing the body temperature. Running a marathon puts a lot of stress on the leg muscles so the cold and hot water, known as a “contrast shower,” helps oxygenate your tired leg muscles and joints.
rest is important
After running, there is a lot of stress on the joints of the body. Especially if you do not practice running regularly, this stretch can be painful. That’s why doctors recommend not doing any kind of exercise or work that causes muscle strain for the next two to three days after a marathon. It is not even necessary to exercise at all. Light exercise promotes faster recovery from oxygen-rich blood flowing to the muscles. Some runners experience pain when they stop exercising after a marathon.
