Take It and Run Thursday: Running Injuries and Treatment
Posted May 28 2009 10:12pm
Welcome to Take It and Run Thursday!
It' s our way to bring together the knowledge of all of us ordinary runners. It' s the virtual equivalent to putting our virtual heads together. Even though many of us aren' t elite athletes, coaches or authors, it doesn' t mean that we haven' t earned a well deserved PhD in running. Whether you are starting out, have 50 years of running under your belt or somewhere in between - all of us have lessons learned that make us wiser and better runners.
This week' s theme is ... Running Injuries and Treatment. First it started as a slight discomfort or something that just wasn' t quite right. And then maybe it blossomed into a full fledge injury. Or maybe...it didn' t. Tell us what you do to prevent and treat your running related injuries. We are interested in how you use good ' ole RICE and MICE but also interested in the not so traditional methods as well.
Next week' s theme is ... Relays, Ultras, and Tris - Oh My! We spend a lot of time in the Lounge talking about more traditional running events like 10K' s, half marathons and marathons because we spend a lot of (collective) time training for them. But we also share a great love for the not-so-traditional running events like cross country, relays, track events, ultras, triathlons, duathlons, serious endurance events and more. Take a break from the "norm" and join in a conversation about the other running events you enjoy.
