Running Is Not a “No Pain No Gain” Sport. (with Video)

What is it with runners that think that “no pain no gain” is the way to train/run?

Now, to be clear, I’m in no way confusing pain with soreness.

Anytime you’re running farther, faster, or doing any number of challenging workouts, your muscles are going to be sore afterward.

But pain? That should be unacceptable.

In today’s video, I’m talking about how running with a no pain no gain attitude doesn’t make sense and how there is no reason that the number of runners that deal with a running related injury should be as high as it is.

And if you’re a runner that regularly has to deal with some of the chronic/common running injuries, we really need to talk.

Have You Ever Dealt With Any Running Injuries? What Ones?
