IT-Band Bugging you on the Run?

We touched on the IT-Band a few weeks ago and how to pull yourself back from irritation/injury . Well, what if we could avoid it in the first place? The constant and repetitive nature of running can lead to a collapsing and caving in of the knee. This is often from reaching out in front of you for your next step.

Instead, focus on keeping your footfall underneath you. Your hip is meant to stabilize your leg in this manner. For more information on how exactly to do so, find us at one of our monthly Running Form Workshops!
