“I have a low risk grade stress reaction in my posterior tibia. Interestingly, there is some research discussing the benefits of weight bearing bone building exercise once tolerated pain free, like hops jumps and step ups. Do you have any advice on when and how to integrate these types of exercises into a rehabilitation program?”

#453 Why some runners should never pay for advice

Every day I talk to injured runners who ask me to help them recover faster so they can run sooner. Some runners call me for a one-time, one-hour consultation. Some runners call me and hire me to literally coach them day-by-day for a full month.
Others who don’t want to spend that kind of money, simply join a coaching group where they can get advice for an entire month and join group web-cam sessions every Monday Wednesday and Friday for 4 weeks in a row.
In those sessions recovering runners get to pick my brain to see what they might be able to do to recovery faster and get back on course sooner.
Today on the Doc On The Run podcast, we’re talking about why some runners should never pay for advice.
