Runner and TV presenter Jenni Falconer will be taking part in the London Marathon for the 5th time this year, competing alongside over 130,000 people from all over the world to complete the 26.2 mile race and keep her record of running under 4 hours.
A self-confessed fitness fanatic, Jenni loves to set herself a challenge and often feels her best when at peak physical fitness. With a gruelling training schedule ahead of her to prepare for the race in April, alongside her day job at Heart FM and presenting The National Lottery, Jenni will need to make sure she’s in tip top condition and training sensibly to maximise her time.
Jenni Falconer says: “I love to set myself a challenge, it helps keep me active and stay motivated. I particularly love the London marathon and the sense of achievement crossing the finish line.
“Although I’ve run in a number of different races, it’s always important to make sure the basics of training are right. Proper training shoes are so important to help avoid injuries. I also have a thorough warm up and cool down routine and I tend to massage my legs with Nelsons arnicare® Arnica Cooling Gel to make sure I’m ready for the next training session!”
Specially formulated, Nelsons arnicare Arnica Cooling Gel is ideal for massaging into tired and over-worked legs, to help cool and revive them.
