Buying running shoes – how to avoid injury

“Buying running shoes that were made for a specific foot profile can cause more injury,” she says. “No athlete’s biomechanics should be overly corrected too quickly because the body needs time to adjust accordingly. Instead, you should opt for shoes that benefit your running style and goals and that possess optimal biomechanics, strength, flexibility and body awareness.”

Testimonial

Thank you for organising another great sporting event for mothers and daughters. My daughters, 4 and 6, and I had a great time learning and having fun. I wanted to let you know that your effort made an impact to me and my family. I could see my girls gaining conDdence in trying something new and moving their bodies in new ways, in their social skills, and in learning about a new sport. And thank you for sharing photos from the day. Lovely to see these action shots. Thanks to all who organised and volunteered. And a big thank you for acknowledging and empowering girls and women in sports.
