Throwback Wednesday: 10 Rules of Running Injuries

Throwback Wednesday: 10 Rules of Running Injuries

As we’re finishing up our third mother runner book, we’re going green this summer and recycling some of our blog posts. This post originally appeared on our site on October 25, 2010

So I’m officially out of the boot–just minutes before my left side permanently shifted an inch downward, I’m certain–but am still in no shape to run. My right foot, the supposedly healed one, is super crampy and tender. Dang it. And my already angry left glutehing (combo of butt, hip and hamstring, of course) is downright pissed from being such a supporting player for over a month. Insert expletive here…

AMR Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit, Episode 5: Piriformis Syndrome

AMR Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit, Episode 5: Piriformis Syndrome

Nicole Hart, a mom on the move in Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania, had a massive pain in her butt for months. “I haven’t been able to do any real speed workouts, just all easy runs,” she told us. “Foam rolling, stretching, core exercises are helping my Piriformis Syndrome, but they’re not perfect. Sitting is the worst for it!” Sounds like she was the next perfect recipient for the AMR TriggerPoint Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit.

Three Icebreaker Aero Crewe wool tees; three winners.

Three Winners of Icebreaker Wool Tees

Today is a two-fer wool day for me: I’ll be sporting an Icebreaker wool tee on a 15-mile run–the longest jaunt so far in my build-up to the Victoria Marathon–then I’ll bundle up in a heavier Icebreaker hoodie as I take my first ice bath of this training cycle. Brrrrr, I shiver just thinking about the ice and cold water on my lady parts!! But while my biscuit-and-bum freeze, my upper body and noggin will remain warm thanks to midweight wool. I love the dichotomy of wool: It’ll help keep me cooler while running, yet keep me warm when my body needs some heat.
