Quiz physio Sarah Connors on how to avoid injury on the way to race day
Hi Blck and white tabby,
as often as you can really twice a day is good, what you'll find as the muscle releases and the stretches get less effective you do them less which is fine, keep going as long as you feel the stretch working. You won't do too much.
Thanks Sarah. Yes, I live in Edgbaston. I'll be volunteering at Brueton parkrun tomorrow if you're there!
I started three times a week following an app Couch to 5K so it was only 1 min runs but I have built up to 25 min runs which got me to 6k. Perhaps I should cut back a bit then
I wonder if it's all coming from your back esp if a cricket injury and strnge to tear both. Try some lower back / core strengthening work to see if that helps.
i'm not there, happy to help though or you could see the Uni physios. Ask Alice for my email if you want some help.
i'm sure bridging and thomas stretch are still on website if not could you flag them up again thanks
I'm afraid we may have to draw things to a close now. Thank you to Sarah for your sterling work answering questions - and thanks to all of you for supplying those questions!
Keep your eye out - the rest of the ASICS PRO Team experts and Target 26.2 coaches will be online for webchats right through until race week.
Thanks everyone and good luck with the training
ahhh, i think I may have missed this, but wonder if I can sneak a question in.......
training for VLM - recovering from shin splints. Think I have now developed a swelling in the bursa on the inside of my knee that has now gone to the front (just below) knee -same leg as the shin splints.
Can I run with this? I have no pain, just the swelling and a little tendor to touch.
