More than 414,168 entered the ballot for this year's London Marathon, making it the most popular marathon in the world. The 26.2 mile route is challenging even for experienced runners, and participants train for months to prepare for the big day. Yet, running a marathon is just as much preparation as it is recovery. Bupa UK’s Clinical Director for MSK, Damian McClelland told the Standard: “Like most extreme sports, when you run a marathon you are essentially working your muscle fibres very hard and need to give them time to repair. “It’s important to make sure you give them enough time to recover, otherwise you run the risk of causing serious damage. It’s also a good idea to recover properly so that you’re not in pain for longer than you need to be.” Below, Dr McClelland has revealed some of the key things you need to do to recover after you’ve finished running a marathon. What to do straight after you finish the … [Read more...] about The best way to recover from a marathon, according to a doctor
Green is the colour of balance, harmony and growth - so what better colour to represent our nation?

Rory Sutherland 16 March 2019 9:02 AM 16 March 2019 9:02 AM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp I have a dim memory from 1970 of a primly dressed distant relative visiting in a Baby Austin. This, I later learned, was the anthropologist Beatrice Blackwood. I googled her 45 years later and was astonished to find she had spent several years in the 1920s and 1930s living alone among Stone Age tribes in New Guinea. Her pet kitten so enchanted the normally fierce Kukukuku that they even built her a temporary house. Aside from her travels, what also surprised me was how close-knit the world of anthropology then was. Just a few hundred people gave rise to debates which are still alive today. Nature vs nurture, for instance. Or IQ testing. Blackwood was a close friend of Hortense Powdermaker, who was later to write a fascinating study of Hollywood called Hollywood, the Dream Factory. She and Powdermaker shared an intense dislike of Margaret Mead, whose … [Read more...] about Are IQ tests really the best way to measure nature vs nurture?
Gabriel Jesus scored four as the holders showed no mercy on their League One opponents on Wednesday, taking their goal tally to 16 in the space of four days following Sunday's 7-0 hammering of Rotherham. Kevin De Bruyne - who set the tone after just five minutes at the Etihad Stadium - Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez were the other scorers in a one-sided semi-final first leg. City spurned a host of other chances and also had a good penalty claim dismissed following a VAR review in what was a record victory in an English domestic cup semi-final. "We spoke about travelling to Burton with as big an advantage as possible but we didn't expect to score so many goals," said City manager Guardiola. "It's the best way to respect the competition and respect the opponents. If you are 4-0 up and forget to continue, you don't have respect for the competition or your opponent. The best way is do what we have to do." It was a tortuous night for Burton and their fans, … [Read more...] about ‘It’s the best way to respect the competition and respect the opponents’
