  • How you Breathe While Running Could be Causing Running Injuries. Our breathing is often an overlooked consideration in the incidence of injuries. However, how we breathe is extremely important, not only to running but also to our health and longevity. If we are not breathing properly, it will place a great deal of stress and tension on our bodies which can result result in injuries and illnesses. 
  • Learn How to Meditate on Running Injuries. It is very effective in helping to speed healing and reducing the incident of future injuries.

Meditation helps to bring the mind and body back into a balanced state, allowing healing to occur naturally.
