“I Fell in a Hole”

Friends, this is a real subject line from an email I received from a client. Here was my response:

Me: “You what? What were you doing? How does something like that happen? Were there sticks and leaves covering the hole like a booby trap?”

Client: “I was running and then I fell into a hole and hurt my back. Now my back hurts. What do I do?”

(Me still wondering why is there a random hole in the ground…)

Ok, so I still don’t have the full story as to why there was a hole in the ground. Maybe that’ll be a follow-up post? ┬áBut this story easily shows how quickly one can become injured even if you are perfectly healthy. Injuries happen, especially in running. As runners, it’s something we will all deal with at some point.

One of the most common questions I get is whether to use heat or ice. Check out the infographic below for specifics.

Have you experienced any running-related injuries?

Stay healthy out there my friends!
