Injury Prevention for Runners

Season 2, Ep. 8

I chat with Head of Running at Digme Fitness on his approach to training, his recommendations for creating a training plan to help you become the strongest runner you can be.

We chat about what strength training we should be doing, common training mistakes in newbie (and veteran) runners and how we can all adapt to the current situation. Ben talks about how he got his start in fitness at Virgin Active as a PT 12 years ago, before working with Joe Wicks at The Body Coach writing workouts and delivering workouts.

My favourite takeaway from this episode was Ben's advice to 'get fit to run', rather than running to get fit. Changing our approach to running by looking at our strength training and mobility as a way to improve our running and prevent injury.
