I’ve seen and heard quoted that at any given time as many as 85% of athletes who consider themselves runners also consider themselves injured. Survey questions can be shaped to elicit a desired response, and statistics can be skewed, but I get where this one is going. Running seems like the most natural way to workout, hell we’ve got two legs, so why not get out there and get after it? Well running can hurt, and (even though I love them) the solution is not new sneakers.
Put it this way, if it hurt every time you squatted, wouldn’t you ask one of your coaches to take a look at your form? Say you’ve been squatting for years, but you haven’t PR’d in a while, and you feel like you’re plateauing, wouldn’t you ask one of your coaches for advice? Just like squatting, running is a skill. If it’s consistently causing you pain, or if you’re not getting faster, it’s time to look at your technique.
