Can Sitting All Day Affect My Running Performance?

A lot of runners are recreational runners; some may be sedentary runners or even weekend warriors. All these terms vary in the attitude of the runner and also the time and effort put into the running. But the bottom line is that they all have day jobs and the running (whether it is daily or once a month) happens outside of the working hours. What is wonderful is that their bodies are getting the exercise that they need; however, attention must be paid to whether sitting all day in a poor posture is affecting your running in some way. If you don’t pay attention to this, you might be allowing yourself to short change your performance or pick up several persisting injuries along the way. So seriously ask yourself- is my sitting killing my running?

Are You Using a Knee Support While Gymming or Running for Pain Management or Prevention? STOP RIGHT NOW!

I often see runners, sports players and gym enthusiasts wearing a knee brace/support every time they play or lift weights. If it was up to me I would personally go up to them and lecture them about the harm they are doing to themselves by doing so. But since it may not be considered appropriate, I decided to write about it.
