I actually used to be a pretty decent runner, but running in combat boots back in the day helped screw up my hip to the point I have been advised by more than one medical professional to not run at all anymore.
And the fact of the matter is that invariably if a new client, especially women, complains of achy knees they either are currently doing some running or have been running, and one of the reasons they come to see us is to try to help them get them to stop hurting so much.
Now frankly I am not going to sit here and advocate running for everybody, because for some people it’s just not appropriate. Running puts a tremendous load on joints, particularly those with higher bodyweights and/or poor running mechanics.
But I also understand that spring is here and with that comes 5k’s, adventure races, triathlons, and some of you are even training for marathons!
And that is why I am pleased to announce that Dr. Brett Coapland will holding a running clinic at Get Fit NH next month.
If you are going to do it, let’s do it right!
