Question: Can I continue to run when injured?
Answer: Most injuries will allow for some running – If you take about a week off to get the healing started you stay below the threshold of irritation. The factors will help you do this:
- Gentle walking for the first 5 minutes and then liberal use of walk breaks,
- Running at a pace slow enough so that you don’t aggravate the injured area,
- Maintain a short stride with feet low to the ground, and
- Stopping the run before you have aggravated the injury. Be sure to get your doctor’s OK before you run when injured.
