Timestamps of big takeaways
Your Body is All One Unit
[00:21] Coach Caroline opens the episode with a story about a RunRX student that had a foot injury, and how it reminded her and Coach Valerie that our bodies are all connected!
[00:54] As the student began working on stretching and releasing the tension in her shoulders, her foot pain stopped.
[01:09] Your body is all one unit and when one area of your body is hurting, it can impact another.
Think Of Your Body as Links in a Chain
[02:16] When something in the chain is preventing a full range of motion, it can impact your entire chain. You have to work out the kinks so to speak to move through a full range of motion.
[02:50] Stretching in one area might not be enough to give you full range of motion.
Work The Whole Body
[03:19] Since everything is connected, you need to keep all of your body limber and open the movement chain.
[04:39] Some of our workouts will make you sore in places you didn’t even realize you were working. This is just further proof that the whole body is connected!
Pain Isn’t Random
[05:06] You may experience pain and not understand what caused it. Maybe it’s how you sat or walked or exercised.
[06:09] So many things can contribute to heel spurs or plantar fasciitis that have nothing to do with running. It all goes back to movement.
Why We Focus on Standard of Movement Training
[06:43] Many runners that come into our programs don’t have a good foundation for strength training. For example, many people think running hurts their knees, but in reality, running is one of the most natural moves there is.
[07:13] So we focus on how to stand, how to walk, and how to run. Doing these movements correctly will help heal all of the painful areas in your life.
