Anatomy for Runners
I've been reading Anatomy for Runners by Jay Dicharry, MPT, SPS. The book gives some great details about why we continue to reinjury ourselves during training. First of all, it is important to understand the right amount of rest is necessary for the healing process, but too much can allow for our muscle fibers to become weakened. Over training results in injury because we don't allow the body mechanics to allow for healing for the strengthening to occur.
I hope to share some key points I learn as I read this book and also get trained to become a fitness instructor for Mercy's Health for Life in Ft. Scott.
