Running Tips

Shoulder Squeezes

 

Pinching your shoulder blades together (gently) while running can promote good posture and prevent neck pain.  Don't let your shoulders round while running, which can put stress on your neck and upper back.

Core Training

 

In order to prevent injuries and protect your back and joints while running, you should incorporate core training into your weekly workouts.  Training your transverse abdominals is essential, as they provide support for your body during runs.  To activate your transverse abdominals, try the "in and up" move with your belly button, pulling in and up with your stomach muscles.  Run happy and pain free!

Running Shoes

 

Choosing the correct running shoe can prevent injuries throughout the body.  The foot is the bottom of the "kinetic chain." If your foot isn't supported properly, faulty mechanics during running can translate up the kinetic chain to your knee, hip, back, even your neck.  Your area of greatest vulnerability will likely be affected.  However, not everyone needs an ultra-supportive shoe.
