Poor practice is just as good as perfect practice when it comes to training the brain. If you’ve ever seen a physio for your running annoyances or an injury, you’ll know that they’re at pains (pardon the pun!) to get you to make minute adjustments so that you do the exercises correctly.
By moving precisely, the brain makes links to the ‘correct’ physical movements, meaning movements are more efficient and will hopefully avoid a recurrence of any injury (the movements could even heal-back better!).
How well do you then apply those corrections to your running technique?
I’m not a physiotherapist, but I am a specialist running coach and can spot potential injury sites a mile off… If you’d like some help or support to run without pain, get in touch.
