Don’t Train Through These Injuries

Runner’s World notes that “if you’re pushing through pain, you’re putting yourself at a far greater risk of losing those gains than if you were to ease up on your long runs or put your ego aside and talk to a physical therapist.”

Said Janet Hamilton: “Listen to the feedback your body is giving you. If you have to alter your form to protect a sore spot, you can easily take one overuse injury and turn it into six.”

“Whether you’re pounding the pavement, plyo boxes, or the weightlifting floor, here are six common exercise injuries that should make you hit the brakes. When you hear your body talking, back off with these expert-approved strategies.”
