Today’s topic is avoiding injury: share your advice on how to dodge shin splints, deal with cramps and avoid the dreaded plantar fasciitis. Do you have any top tips, massage balls or foam rollers to share with the group?
“No pain, no gain” is not a motto to be taken literally. Today we’re going to talk about how best to stay injury-free while running.
None of us want to take a break from our running routine and prevention is far better than cure, so let’s talk about the warning signs of injury – the aches and pains that mean something is going wrong. Did you keep running through the early twinges and end up having to seek medical attention? Or are you so attuned to your body that you know when a dodgy knee is something more serious? If so, please share your wisdom.
We’ve all (most of us, at least) suffered with shin splints and other nasties so do you have any magic remedies? Can nothing beat RICE or would you recommend any exercises, massage or gizmos?
And if you’ve never experienced an injury – tell us the secret of your immaculate running technique and perfect footwear.
