[MEDICAL] - Running is a Pain - Well, it is for me. I'm attempting to train as a beginner runner and around every turn I injure myself. Even starting out slowly. Luckily there are a number of books for runners that deal with injuries, and Maggie owns two decent ones. The Runner's Repair Manual is an oldie but a goodie, and Running Injury-Free is a newer book that has helped us out.
I found the following website which has a lot of the same advice: Kick! | Aches & Pains. It's a general running website, but the injury section is a good place to start. Even if you're not running, it's nice to know how to deal with some of these foot and leg problems. I've had plantar fascia problems long before I started running, so walkers and hikers can get decent advice here.Posted by James at March 25, 2002 8:34 AM
