Get A Physical Examination Before You Take Part In A Marathon
It doesn’t matter how old you are; you should always contact your primary care doctor for a physical examination before you take part in a marathon. Through an exam, your doctor can make sure that you can physically handle the training and running that most marathons include.
The doctor can also give you any advice on how to build your training techniques to get you ready for the marathon. They can also explain to you what warning signs, you will feel if you start to push your body too much, are in the danger zone for a heat stroke, or anything else.
