Training for the Brooklyn Half marathon

Training for the Brooklyn Half marathon (or any other race) coming up?

Check out these tips for preventing running injuries, and feel free to read more through the link below.

1. Switch it up! Changing your workouts prevents injury from repetitive movements. From changing the terrain of your run to alternating the intensity of your workouts, small tweaks can protect your body from harm.

2. Recover, recover, recover. You know your body better than anyone. If something truly doesn’t feel right or you experience sharp, persistent pain, be sure to stop and seek medical advice.

3. Master your form. Good technique goes a long way in preventing injury and keeping runners in top shape. If you’re not sure what your best stride should look like, ask for advice from a running professional.

For more smart training advice, speak your physical therapist. We’re more than happy to help.
