5 Common Running Mistakes
1.) Off Kilter – This running pattern, also known as, Asymmetrical running, means that you land harder on one side of the body. Eventually, this pattern could lead to lower back pain which could then travel all the way up your spine affecting other portions of your upper extremity.
2.) Knees Collapse Inward & Weak Hips – As you run, your knees should stay lined up with your hips. If your knees go inward it’s a symptom on a weak butt (glutes). It could also be a symptom of very tight I.T. bands. These fibrous bands connect at your hips and run down through your knees and insert at your upper calves. Both of these problems spell trouble over time. Knee issues are never fun!
