Diane Lee, a Candadian physical therapist, has one of my favorite quotes relating to running:
“You can’t run to get fit, you need to be fit to run.”
To me, this makes so much sense.
It explains why many runners seem to be plagued by chronic injuries that never seem to go away.
Their bodies were never in a position to be running in the first place.
Please, please, please make sure that you are getting your injuries addressed by a physical therapist who not only responds to your acute symptoms, but also looks for the reason why they happened.
