Running Injury & Recovery
Why do my muscles ache after my first runs?
Why am I getting blisters?
Avoiding early running aches and pain
It is important not to confuse these early aches and pains with niggles and injuries that may come along as you get greater consistency in your running. Things such as shin splints, runner’s knee, achilles tendinopathy, and plantar fasciitis are common runner injuries which usually occur due to overuse. If you suspect that you might be injured rather than just suffering the initial aches and pains of the beginner runner, then seek professional help rather than trying to second guess or self-diagnose.
