Unfortunately injuries are a part and parcel of running, and will effect most runners at some point. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean your dreams and goals are lost. If an injury is properly diagnosed and the training is suitably adapted, you can actually come out the other side, post injury, fitter than you ever have been before!
Some injuires are short lived, but more serious injuries may require weeks or months away from running. How can you stay as fit as possible during all that time off? Running of course, is what you love best, but if you use that time wisely, with the right cross training – you can help yourself come back stronger.
Certain types of cross-training such as aqua jogging, spinning and the elliptical are the most running-specific, meaning your fitness correlates perfectly to running.
