Good to know. Thanks.
I wish I had read this when I was a competitive athlete!
A excellent article and good information to know.
Thanks for sharing.
Good to know. I'll work on prevention.
Thank you helpful for me
Common sense and listening to my body has helped me prevent injuries the most. I just wish I had learned that lesson far sooner in my life!
I wish I would’ve been able to prevent this Achilles tendinitis
A great article. I especially liked the walking/running sections.
I got injured training for a marathon about 8 years ago. I recovered but my feet are knees are not the same. I can’t hardly wear high heels- which I like from time to time- I always feel like I am going to fall. I have arthritis, varicose veins that I always had- but I think the harsh training made it worse. I am not sorry I trained, I am sorry that I get injured. I walk a lot and from to time to time, I run/walk a 5 or 10k. It is important to check and change your shoes often; and use the right ones, with proper support for your feet. Unfortunately some us, don’t find out about that until is too late. I learned a lot from that experience.
The huge amount of pictures of food, especially desserts at the end of the articles definitely overthrow any self control I have toward eating less.
