Busting the most common running-injury myths with Physiotherapist Brodie Sharpe

December 9, 2020

This week, I put out a poll on IG asking about injury-rates across the year. The results showed that more than 50% of the runners following me experienced at least one injury this year that affected their training. 

With injury being one of the biggest and frustrating things that hold runners back, this is a timely episode that is going to be so informative for endurance athletes out there. 

In this episode, I have a ripper convo with Physiotherapist Brodie Sharpe, who is the founder of The Breakthrough Running Clinic, and host of the Run Smarter Podcast with a special interest in running injuries. We go through the 10 most common running-injury myths and discuss the evidence behind what is true, or what isn't. 

Some of these misconceptions we hear almost every week, highlighting the importance of clarifying the facts and sharing accurate information around the running community.

Whether you are a health professional, or a runner wanting to prevent or treat an injury, you will get so much out of this episode. Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or Podbean. Enjoy, legends!
