Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

How to run injury-free

As a long-time runner I’ve experienced pretty much every running injury.  From relatively minor injuries like shin splings and pulled calf muscles to more serious running injuries like Plantar Fasciitas and broken bones in my foot..a few years ago I even walked the Reggae Marathon 10K in a Walking Cast!

In my younger days I was a carefree, even careless runner.  Now a bit older, I’ve become more cautious and have become more interested in running injury free. I start out slowly and walk for a bit after every run to cool down.  My goal is to run injury-free!

I’ve also discovered stretching.  Before and after every run I do some active stretching. I found this chart recently and have incorporated many of these stretching exercises into my routine to great benefit:


Until next time…
