Running is great… said a handful of people. Once.
Just kidding, running is a major life skill and takes a level of mental toughness that is rivaled by few things. It is also hard on the entire body because of its highly repetitive nature and short range of motion.
When we take that into consideration, it is easy to understand why running generates the most “over-use” injuries with respect to modes of exercise. It isn’t dangerous, but it will break down the body over time, unless…
The lateral lunge is a great way to give the body full range of motion and do so in a totally different plane of movement.
Don’t let your body panic! Give it what it wants so you can keep doing what you love.
Good luck and #keepmoving
