Coming into spring is a high risk time for injury for runners.
Are you a dry weather athlete? Is exercising in the cold something that doesn’t appeal to you? Lets face it, the idea of running in cold weather is never as appealing as running on a clear, sunny 25 degree day. As the weather warms up getting out in the sun for a jog becomes much more appealing. However, if you have had a patchy winter or you like to run more in the warmer weather you are at a higher risk of injury.
Big increases in training volume can lead to soft tissue injuries and tendinopathies.
Getting fitted for the right shoe, planning your training volume and having your exercises tailored to address your strength and mobility deficits in your running gait will lead to optimal improvements in running efficiency, speed and reduce the risk of injury. At Boost our Podiatrists can help find you the right shoe and give you tips on running gait. Our Exercise Physiologist will help tailor an exercise program to keep you running for longer, injury free.
