Title: Any runner here ?
Post by: hooflag on April 12, 2021, 05:30:18 pm
Hello to all!
I wonder if there are any runners on this forum?
I started running in the mountains a few weeks ago, I was wondering if you had any advice, websites or youtube channels to help me progress. There are a lot of resources on the internet and it's not easy to sort them out!
Thanks :)

I like to run although I don't claim to be particularly good at it  :laughcrying:  Main advice is focus on correct form to avoid getting any problems with your joints--f you're running in mountains then you'll be doing a lot of uphill and downhill which requires a slightly different form.

Idk if I count as a runner, I don’t run professionally but I’m a decent runner recreationally, usually sprinting tho.

My advice is to train ur shin muscles, eat foods that are easy to digest so you don’t get any stomach issues while you run and distract yourself as much as you can while you run so you don’t focus on the pain.

If you’re experiencing pain then that’s the time to stop. I got told that at a gym years ago on one of the machines and my knee started giving me trouble.

Sorry I misworded that, it’s more like fatigue/ running pain, not exercise pain.

If you’re old enough (I think it is not recommended for under 18) I’ve heard creatine can help with that.

Possibly the first time I’ve ever heard of that.

I have heard of creatine but thought it was for muscle building, what else does it do?

It is mainly used for adding muscle, but it also helps reduce muscle fatigue generally, so if muscle fatigue is making running hard, I think it could help.

What about crunching and cracking in the knees?

I don’t think it would help since that sounds more like an issue with your joints rather than muscles, but I’m not an expert or anything so take what I saw with a grain of salt lol

To get better you just need to practice. For me, to work on my form, I do free standing calf raises on one foot. If you can do at least 20 on each side, your all good. If not, you may be susceptible to a ankle injury

What does your run look like? Is the terrain flat?
