What are the two words that a runner, at any experience level, never wants to hear? “You’re injured”.
Unfortunately, if you run, there’s a very high probability that you will get injured at some point in your running “career”. It could be as minor as a sprained ankle from hitting the trails too hard or as serious as a series of stress fractures that will take months to heal. But don’t be afraid because, with some hard work and the right attitude, you will get through it!
So for this month’s Running 101, I thought it would be valuable to talk about how to cope with the dreaded running injury. And I’m happy to share some resources from some of my favorite running bloggers who have also learned a few things along the way!
