Tips for dealing with post run soreness

Thanks to Abby Dixon, one of resident experts for tips on dealing with post run soreness! 

Feeling a bit strained from your run?!

⛰️🏃‍♀️👉🏻 Avoid poking and prodding where it hurts

👉🏻 If you feel you have a torn muscle stretching it is unhelpful in the first few days

🤓 Putting the muscle in a relaxed position (off stretch) allows it to repair

💡 For the calf this = wearing shoes where the heel is higher than the forefoot

💡 For the hammy this does not = bending over and stretching

👉🏻 Compression is of high value ie compression sleeves/taping

👉🏻 Icing is of lower value but if it feels soothing go for it

🤯 Bone injuries don’t like icing, if you have a rolled ankle and ice packs/baths make it throb seek a professional opinion

🤓 Today listen to your body, if it’s uncomfortable it’s unlikely to be helpful
