Tips for preventing injuries
'Make time for a treatment at least once a month. A massage is essential to help increase blood flood to tired muscles, help recovery and to increase flexibility. It is not a TREAT, it's vital to prevent and reduce common running injuries.'
'Have a dynamic warm-up before you run. What does that mean? It should include specific, active stretches for the hips, back, quads, hamstrings and calves. NO STATIC STRETCHES!'
'You need the right equipment to do your sport. Tennis shoes are for tennis, fashion trainers are for fashion and running shoes for running. Get yourself a good pair of trainers – they should fit properly and be comfortable.'
