153: Get Rid of Running Pain for Good

running injuries Aug 13, 2020

Runners like to run and when they cannot run the way they want, they are not their best.  Injuries can often stand in the way of a runner reaching his potential.  Unfortunately, many runners deal with injuries by pretending they don’t exist or treating symptoms.  We take a break from running, but when we ramp back in mileage or speed, the pain comes back.  How can we get better without consistency?  What do we do when the only consistency in our running is the injury that keeps flaring up?
