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
