How to Prevent Running Injuries

Hi all, many thanks for coming along to my talk on Tuesday. It was really humbling to see so many people there to listen to me ranting on….

As promised, here is a link for you to download the presentation:

Download Powerpoint

Download pdf

I have included a link below to the results from the SurveyMonkey questionnaire for anyone who is interested. 


Below is the link to Greg Lehman’s very well written blog on stretching…..


Below is the table for normal values for calf raising..

For anyone who likes to keep abreast of these things I can highly recommend Tom Goom’s website/blog. Tom is a Physio on the south coast who is very well up on all things running research related. I did a course with Tom a few years back and he certainly knows what he is talking about! 


There are obviously loads of books out there about running but the 2 biggy’s that have influenced me lately are:

Good to Go: How to Eat, Sleep and Rest Like a Champion by Christie Aschwanden 

Endure: Mind, Body and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance by Alex Hutchinson (who also does a great blog https://sweatscience.com/ )

For those of you thinking about dipping your toe in the Ultra world then I love listening to https://www.scienceofultra.com/podcasts

If anyone has any queries or questions the please do get in touch at Dave@tadcasterphysio.co.uk 

Thanks again! Dave Baxter
