New Year New You? Not So Fast, Please.
Updated: Jan 16, 2019
Every spring without fail, the incidence of running related injuries spikes in every clinic I’ve ever worked in. The reason is always the same, over use type soft tissue injuries directly related to a “too much, too fast” training approach to prepare for the upcoming race season.
This is understandable in a place like Alberta where snow and ice can cover our roads and trails for 7 months. Then we get about 4 weeks of half decent outdoor conditions before the first wave or races are upon us. Just as predictable as the increase in running injuries, is the question I have for each newly injured runner, “what have you been doing all winter?” Answers range from “nothing” to “running on a treadmill”, but seldom do answers include “strength training” and “preventative maintenance” to build a more resilient body for the upcoming running season.
So how do we prevent this injuries from happening? You guessed it, MOVEMENT. Contact our team to ensure you have a solid strength and conditioning program in place before you hit those goals of yours.
