We are perfectly designed to run. The problem is we have modified our lifestyle the point where our physical activity has been reduced to the absolute bare minimum. Basically we live our lives sitting in a chair and that negatively affects our health. We then try to undo this by heading out for a run only to feel sore and often get injured.
We now know that a sedentary lifestyle kills more people than obesity, hypertension and diabetes combined. This is a staggering fact and one which is easily reversible. Many people think running is damaging to their health but the reality is the sofa is far more dangerous to our health and our bodies!
Studies tell us that 80% of runners will get injured. So back to the sofa we go, nursing our injury. We want more people to get out of their chairs and out enjoying their runs, pain free.
The running story started 4.4 million years ago when we first came upright onto two legs. We didn’t realise it at the time, but coming upright so we could free our hands and move on our feet has allowed us to become the most successful species on the planet. Why is that?
