Every spring for 13 years, it never fails when we hit April.
Runners running for the first time in 5-6 months end up hurting their ankles and knees. The reasons are endless but I think we can all agree that if falls into a couple of categories;
guys looking to get buff for vacation
ladies looking to slim down for that August wedding
Often there is this rush to solve those aches and pains of the winter too quickly. People will invest their tax return into a few massages to heal that old back injury in 1 hour.
If I had five bucks for every time I saw this scenario, I could retire.
Give Your SPRING a Break
Like the majority of Canadians, I love spring. We get out of our cocoons and head outdoors to patios, parks and pools. Inevitably people want to pick up where they left off last summer. Try to remember how much time has passed since your last workout. Ease into it.
Inevitably people become self conscious when they try on that new bathing suit; make a sensible plan, you’ve got 12 weeks before summer hits. You’ve got time even if you think you don’t.
Resist the urge to push too hard, if you don’t you’ll wind up on my table.
Be smart and don’t break your spring!
