As a runner, taking care of your feet is ESSENTIAL.  And yet, it often seems to find its way near the bottom of the priority list.  Since I’m currently dealing with plantar fasciitis after a long marathon training cycle, let’s say that I’ve truly learned this lesson the hard way – don’t neglect your feet!

The good news is that with the proper stretches, icing, and arch support, I seem to have a pretty positive prognosis.  One element that is absolutely helping in my recovery is OOFOS Oolala Sandals.  I already owned a pair of OOFOS OOriginal sandals that I purchased after falling in love with the OOFOS OOmg Recovery Shoes that I reviewed for Bibrave last year.  I’m a huge fan of the brand and I’m happy to share why you need to add OOFOS to your running shoe collection!

As a runner, it can be a real challenge to keep your muscles pain-free, even when you do all the right things: foam rolling, stretching, strength training.  During this current cycle of marathon training, I’ve learned that there’s no shame in using tools to give you a little bit more support.  That’s why I was so excited to get the opportunity to use KT Tape for the first time!  I’m sharing my review (and a discount) with you – check it out and see if it can help you out too!

Running 101: How to Cope with a Running Injury

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | injury prevention

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!

I’ve previously shared the following Running 101 topics:
