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?!

β›°οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘‰πŸ» Avoid poking and prodding where it hurts

πŸ‘‰πŸ» If you feel you have a torn muscle stretching it is unhelpful in the first few days

πŸ€“ Putting the muscle in a relaxed position (off stretch) allows it to repair

πŸ’‘ For the calf this = wearing shoes where the heel is higher than the forefoot

πŸ’‘ For the hammy this does not = bending over and stretching

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Compression is of high value ie compression sleeves/taping

πŸ‘‰πŸ» 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

πŸ€“ Today listen to your body, if it’s uncomfortable it’s unlikely to be helpful
