The #1 Mistake that Leads to Injury (it’s not what you’d think!)
The painful truth is that 37-56% of runners will experience injury in a given year according to The Journal of Sports Medicine. The number of runners who will suffer with injury during their lifetime is even higher–I’ve seen estimates as high as 80%.
That’s why we want to give you the tools to become a Resilient Runner. What is a resilient runner you might ask?
A Resilient Runner is able to take a pounding and keep on running. You can learn to be a resilient runner, too! Learn to pre-empt injuries before they get worse and to deal with existing injuries intentionally and effectively so that you can get back to running.
I get asked injury related questions all the time! That’s why I have teamed up with Angie Spencer (RN and Certified Running Coach) and Trevor Spencer (co-host of the Marathon Training Academy Podcast) to bring you the ultimate resource for self-treating and preventing running injuries.
The biggest mistake is thinking I’LL WORRY ABOUT THIS WHEN I GET INJURED. We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to start thinking about injury prevention now. If you want to meet your current goals and run well into your older years, THEN you can’t afford to wait until you get injured!
You need to be preemptive in dealing with running injuries before they become full blown. That’s why in the Resilient Runner program, we explain injury prevention strategies that we use to keep running, plus we provide detailed videos and user guides on each problem area of the body including:
- Lower Back Pain and Piriformis
- Hip: Hip Bursitis and Hip Flexor Pain
- Upper Leg: Iliotibial Band and Hamstring Injury
- Knee Pain: Patellar Femoral Pain Syndrome (Runner’s Knee); Patellar Tendinitis; and Meniscus Injury
- Lower Leg and Foot: Achilles Tendinitis; Plantar Fasciitis; Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction; Shin Splints; and Stress Fractures
It’s a virtual library of self-treatment protocols including downloadable podcasts, videos, and .pdf files of rehabilitation guides. It also includes a 320 page eBook, The Resilient Runner, Prevention and Self-Treatment Guide to Common Running Related Injuries.
