SF Tri Run Clinic: Foot Issues
The point of the clinic was to discuss some of the keys to training that might help one avoid injury, particularly those running injuries that can wreck a triathlon season. We talked about running shoe selection, common training errors and barefoot running biomechanics.
There were many great questions from our Peeps. I will be posting those questions here, with answers, for all those who could not make to the Presidio Sports Basement for the clinic.
In fact, here's one now...
Question: What ARE the most common preventable running injuries?
Answer: The most common injuries I see in San Francisco runners and triathletes (that are preventable) are:
1. Stress Fractures
2. Achilles Tendinitis
3. Plantar Plate Injuries
4. Peroneal Tendintis
See you out in the water, on the track, or on the road!
