I love to run.
I’ve loved to run ever since I was young.
I’ve been fortunate to participate in marathons, triathlons, and even Ironman competitions for multiple decades.
But you know what?
The older I get, the more I find that I’m not able to run as much as I’d like.
Even though I’ve stayed very active throughout my life… Even though I’ve done all the recommended things: cardio, strength training, stretching, and proper nutrition… Even though I did everything “right,” I was unable to stop the effects that aging had on my ability to run.
At 58, I’ve definitely slowed down. But I still keep running. And every day, I’m blessed to work with runners of all abilities and ages.
And while most of my runners are pretty healthy, they do get injured from time to time. And when runners are injured, it can be both physically and emotionally devastating.
Are you seeing injured runners in your practice?
What makes our runners so committed to their sport is the same thing that makes them frequent fliers to our clinics. Overuse, overtraining, and a lack of appropriate strength training and stretching
leads to injury patterns that never seem to go away.
And for our aging runners, injuries become even more common. In this clip
, we discuss the effects that aging has on running, including the facts and stats you need to know about running performance as we age:
- Biological factors
- Psychological, social, and cultural factors
- Alternatives and solutions for the aging runner
