{Running Injuries}

Since I won’t be running for the next few days due to my sprained ankle in a race this past weekend, it might be the right time to talk about injuries caused by running. I’ve been so lucky to have never suffered from a running injury over the past 16 years of running. Although my injury was caused by a tree root and not overuse or overtraining, most runners will experience an injury of some sort in their running career.

Overuse or training too much too soon can all lead to injuries. The infographic below helps explain the basics, prevention, and treatment should you ever get the dreaded running injury.

Safe Running!
