Physioworks Health Group Exercise Physiologist Megan Jepson participated & completed the 2019 Melbourne Half Marathon, having trained & prepared numerous Physioworks clients & team members with tailored training programs for various events at the Melbourne Marathon Festival, helping them reach their event goals. Megan sums up the event:

 

Melbourne Marathon 2019

 

WHAT A DAY!! The Melbourne Marathon Festival never disappoints… one of my favourite fun run events of the year! Well done to all who participated & completed their events:

  • Physioworks Exercise Physiologist Dylan D’Souza reached his goal of sub 50mins running the 10km in 49.20.
  • Sandra Barber turning it up in her second half marathon (21.1km) with an interrupted but managed preparation this year, making it all the more challenging than her first…
  • With a dedicated pre-event training program, Physioworks Director Andrew Dalwood with Mick O’Dea, who overcame injury in last year’s event, smashing PB’s in the half marathon this year.
  • Physioworks Physio Amanda Roberstson had a heavy training load running around Drouin in the lead up to her half marathon (probably harder than the actual event due to all the hills) allowing her to fly on the flats (except for that last hill over the foot bridge at the end.. hugely unwelcomed by all I have to admit)
  • Richard who’s goal was sub 2 hours for the half marathon & he smashed it!!
  • And “drum roll please…..Mr Neal Barber for racing in his very first Marathon. With a goal of 4hrs 30 he came in just under in 4hrs 28! What an absolute amazing achievement! Another item off the bucket list ticked off! The Marathon really is something else & really makes you turn up the gears! Incredible!
