For those of you that lead a rather sedentary lifestyle or haven't exercised in a few years, running seems to be the go to exercise for most.
If you're commuting to your 9 to 5 job Monday to Friday and have been inactive for years, it is vitally important that you dont just hit the road with the intention of clocking up as many miles as possible within each week.
That seated position that you've been stuck in since your school days has caused a lot of tension in your body – in particular your hamstrings, hip flexors and external rotators of the hip. Running is going to cause issues.
1. Go to an established Trainer and get a strength / mobility plan that will optimise your running.
2. Start with short distances and achievable goals.
3. Find a physical therapist and schedule a treatment / massage once a month.
4. Go to a nutritionist and make sustainable changes to your diet that will optimise health.
