Coach Hillary Kigar shares a tip she picked up while listening to a lecture delivered by esteemed distance running coach Jack Daniels.
Get Fit, Not Injured!
Stay off the sidelines by following these rules…
Take it easy.
When you’re starting a new running routine, less is more. If you feel tired or sore, don’t hesitate to take a day off (even if it’s not scheduled in your program) and pick up training the next day.
Eat your fruits and veggies.
Your body craves antioxidants to reduce the inflammation from running. Fill your plate with produce to keep muscles strong and happy.
A few times a week, use a self-massage tool—like a stick or foam roller—to ward off knots and imbalances.
