I couldnt wait to have my first competition to see how I stacked up against the rest of our league. However, 2 days before that first track meet, I felt a “pulling” in my lower back every time I ran. It didn’t seem serious but it did slow me down during practice. But I decided I’d work through it and run in that track meet anyway.Well, that day came and I was feeling better. I thought I’d got over the issue as I stepped into the starting blocks and eyed the finish line. POW! The starter pistol went off and I bolted from the blocks… I didn’t make it to the finish line.Knowing what I know now, I’m pretty sure I had a hip flexor injury which, if you’ve ever had one, is really irritating and nagging and you pretty much can’t run. And I learned a valuable lesson at the time too. I learned that I must take precautionary measures to avoid such injuries. Basically, I didn’t stretch or warm up. Well, while I was supposed to be stretching and warming up with the team, I didn’t put much effort into it.If you’re unfortunate enough to get an injury that hinders your running routine, then this book will help you to alleviate the issue as quickly as possible.
