Are you Prone to Running Injuries?

Running injuries can be devastating to a runner and some runners have more than their share of injuries. A running injury can prevent us from running for months or more and it is difficult to know when it's safe to return to running. Many runners are very frustrated with a continuous cycle of re-occurring injuries. What can we do to prevent future injuries and to recover more quickly when we do have an injury?

You will find below various strategies on how to deal with running pain and injuries, advice on the cause of injuries, how to speed recovery and information on the most common running injuries. You can also read about the experiences of other runners and share your own running experience with running injuries.

Running Injuries

  • How you Breathe While Running Could be Causing Running InjuriesOur 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.
