    You can return to running after two weeks of easy running at reduced volume (one week for ~50%, and another as recovery).

  • Ankle Running Injuries

    Are you a runner who is experiencing ankle pain?

    If so, you’re not alone. Every step puts pressure on your ankles and with every mile, it adds up to 1,700 times. Eventually, this could result in injury and pain. While many factors contribute to the development of an ankle injury such as age, weight, running style, or training surface one factor that can be controlled is foot pronation (how much your feet roll inward).
