Aches and Pains

 I am sure you've had some aches and pains by now. Believe you me, runners have their fair share.Lets look at some of the more common aches and pains and how to prevent them. Muscle soreness, twisted ankles, sunburn, chafing, toenail loss and muscle cramps, can in most cases, prevent you from running or enjoying your run. Remember an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Use sunscreen during summer months. Always warm up properly before running. Anti-chafing creams can be purchased at local stores.To prevent twisted ankles, always run on level ground when possible. Toenail loss occurs when running shoes are not sized properly. In other words, the shoes are to small. Being dehydrated will cause mucles to cramp, so drink up. Always, I repeat, always see your doctor for recurrent, persistent and severe aches and pains. Finished This One With A Cramp.
