Years ago I could hardly walk up stairs, my knees were so bad from years of running endless marathons and ultra-marathons. The physio said my legs were weak, despite the cross training of gym sessions and cycling. What the physio was trying to say, is that my legs were not in balance.
The muscles were pulling my kneecap and knee into the wrong place. So as stubborn as I was and determined never to go back to to the physio, after the pain of elbow and needles to fix my leg, I devised my own method of balancing my legs.
I headed for the water and designed exercises that simulated running in the pool. I had always relied aqua running with a flotation vest. This helped keeping me fit when I was injured but never gave me the real benefit of strong balanced legs and core muscles.
I discovered exercises that got me back on the road never to have another knee related problem again and on top of it alleviated cramping in my hamstrings; and I could run faster and farther without running as as much.
Doing these exercises will not only get you back on the road but save you a fortune on physio bills.
I will post each exercise up and set you a challenge half of what you save on physio bill, with all your medical savings you can donate to RunEzi.com and we will all be happy 🙂
