A single marathon is a desirable and incredible achievement, but 48 in 30 days? Sounds impossible. Right?
Not for our own Will Goodge, Puresport’s head running coach.
Kicking off with a 26.2 mile run in Tyne & Wear on September 4 2021, Will proceeded to tour the country in a decked out live-in van, along with his support crew Charlie, Josh and Robbie, running one or two marathons, every single day. The London Marathon on October 3 rounded off Will’s world record-breaking run challenge, which he managed to complete in an impressive 3 hours 6 minutes.
With runners still hobbling days after crossing the line at the capital’s infamous marathon, Will was back in the gym just two days later. This is how…
Will’s recovery regime
Puresport CBD 1000mg Muscle & Joint Balm
‘I used this every morning before I ran along with the Puresport 1000mg Pure Freeze Roll On. Both of these provide instant relief and during my challenge they helped me swerve any inflammation so my muscles and joints were free from pain,’ explains Will.
The Puresport Muscle & Joint Balm takes Pure Sport’s premium 0% THC CBD Oil and combines it with some of nature’s most potent ingredients; Lavender,
Wintergreen, Peppermint, Lemongrass and more. These are all essential oils said to aid with pain relief and relaxation.
A nap a day
Will reveals that after running, he took Puresport Clarity Oil. ‘Then I was getting a 30 to 40 minute NuCalm nap in the van after runs, as we travelled between marathon destinations. It was like hitting the reset button, and allowed me to wake up feeling ready mentally to go for my second marathon of the day, or enjoy the rest.’
Will turned to NuCalm, a patented technology within an app that helps put your brain into alpha and theta states; essentially deep meditation and sleep.
Puresport Boost and Clarity oils
Will opted for Puresport Boost oil pre run, and Puresport Clarity oil post run.
Puresport Boost Oil – containing 1500mg CBD, Lions Mane, Ginseng and
Vitamin C – has been engineered to provide an extra spring in your step. Vitamin C helps to safeguard memory, encourage alertness and also maintain the ready functioning of the immune system; Lion’s Mane is said to have strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cognitive and immune- boosting abilities, whilst Ginseng is said to fight fatigue and stimulate energy levels.
The Puresport Clarity oil is a blend of 1500mg CBD, Ashwagandha, Vitamin D and Ginkgo Biloba, aimed at reducing brain fog.
Rather than having a masseuse on hand, Will used Normatech boots by Hyperice. These slip-on ‘legs’ offer a compression massage to enhance blood flow and speed up recovery.
8 hours of solid sleep each night
A good night’s rest is a crucial element of recovery.
Will opted for Puresport 1000mg CBD oil before bed to help him switch off.
‘You would think pushing so hard physically every day would make sleep easy, but my central nervous system was in a state of shock. Winding down was crucial to ensure that I could get up and keep running every day. I needed a solid 8 hours every night, which I got thanks to Puresport CBD oil and Puresport Unwind capsules.’
Implementing all of the above, every day, allowed Will to smash his month-long feat without picking up any injuries.
Well done Will, we’re proud of you!
