As the weather heats up, we embark upon marathon/race season. Many of us head out of the health club and start spinning our wheels on the track or trail. No matter what distance you run, you know one thing is true: running comes with nagging aches and pains.
A common pain that running causes is in the feet/arches. This is most likely caused by the debilitating condition, plantar fasciitis.
So what is plantar fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation in the thick tissue on the bottom of your feet, otherwise known as “plantar fascia.” Plantar fascia is the tissue that connects your toes to your heel and forms your arch. Plantar fasciitis is caused by long-distance running, arch problems, a tight Achilles tendon or over-training.
Acceleration Training can help prevent and treat plantar fasciitis by stretching, strengthening and massaging the inflamed tissue.
Try this program before you train and on your off-days to help keep you on your feet.
