By now many of you are well into your training for upcoming races. Unfortunately injuries are often a part of training. Not sure what to do and looking for information? Runners Rescue offers just that.
This sports podiatrist has pooled together information from many of his colleagues and physiotherapists to offer you essential information on how to prevent and treat running injuries. Many of the running tips and lessons are from his experiences as a runner and a sports podiatrist so that you too can run injury free and enjoy it!
The menu on the side offers links to information on
- Foot Pain
- Lower Leg Pain
- Upper Leg Pain

- Training Routines
All but the last two cover topics on injuries. Training routines span tips on programs from beginner to advanced levels of running.
Miscellaneous covers topics such as Winter Training, which hopefully we won’t need for much longer. Me, I’m looking forward to Summer Training, so I’m gonna skip over and read that one first.
Here’s hoping you all have a healthy training season!
We are always looking for Web sites with great advice, tips and information for our readers or a blogger with an interesting story to tell. If you’ve got a Web site or blog you would like to see featured, leave a comment with the details.
For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep.
Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003.
Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon.
Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.
