Badminton Star Gail Emms dropped into Premier Physiotherapy Centre earlier today to utilise the Alter G, anti gravity treadmill, for a recovery run during her taper phase in preparation for this weekends Flora London Marathon.
Under the watchful eye of fitness coach Russell Holman she performed her run at her projected marathon pace, she is aiming for a 3 hours 50 minute finish, at just 85% of her body weight. This allowed her to run at race pace whilst reducing the overall stress to the system thus allowing her pre-run recovery to continue.
How did she enjoy her experience? Well see for yourself this Saturday during BBC breakfast as Mike Bushell was there to record it ! Mike couldn't resist trying out the machine for himself and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, apart from attempting to run at Paula Radcliffe's marathon pace (even at just 80% body weight!). BBC breakfast airs between 6.00am and 9.30am Saturday 25th April 2009.
