Summer Running Camp, Part 3: How to Prevent Running Injuries

The weather might be cooling off, but Summer Running Camp is still in full swing.

During the first two weeks of camp we covered establishing a running routine and proper running form. Both fundamentals of sustainable running.

This week we cover a topic most runners pretend doesn’t exist (until it’s too late):

Injuries and injury prevention.

For many runners, injuries have become commonplace. They find themselves with a new injury each season, or battle the same aches and pains year after year.

But that doesn’t have to be the standard — in fact it shouldn’t be. There is such a thing as injury-free running, and in today’s episode we’ll help you find it.

So lace up those running shoes and head towards the lake. Camp has officially resumed for the next 55-minutes.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • Are injuries just a part of running?
  • Why most beginners get injured
  • When it’s important to warm-up before a run
  • Eating after a run — should you calculate nutrient ratios?
  • The forgotten recovery tool
  • How to adjust your training after an injury
  • The great ball-bag debate
