Running With Diane Ramsay – Dealing With InjuriesGareth Marshall
Being injured as an athlete isn’t an ideal situation and it’s very easy to become demotivated as cross training isn’t what you want to do. As a runner I want to run; but at the moment I’m stuck doing other forms of training to keep my fitness up until I can run again.My injury is healing slowly but this week I will returning to some light running drills (technical running style movements) whilst keeping up aqua jogging and circuits. Pictures! The first is my kettle bell I use for circuits and secondly my aqua jogging belt for the pool.
One thing I can maintain and control when injured is my diet as it also assists the recovery of an injury. My favourite meal of the day is breakfast. I normally eat an egg based breakfast with some spring onions, peppers and spinach cooked and mixed through. The picture is the breakfast I eat most days as it’s quick to make and gets all the right nutrients in first thing in the morning- scrambled eggs with the veg and some cooked ham for extra protein.
