A quick fast fact about the Olympics!
Did you know that…
The 2014 Olympic torch travelled 40, 300 miles on its way to Sochi, the longest journey for the torch ever!
40, 300 miles is approximately 80, 600, 000 steps! Way too much for one person to manage!
However, we often see our walkers, runners and triathletes run between 15 and 65 miles per week leading up to an event. This translates to 30, 000 to 130, 000 steps per week! Now add to that an imbalance in the hip or knee or ankle! The body will only take us so far until it gets fed up and creates pain in a valiant attempt to stop us for torturing ourselves further!
Pain will then be expresses as plantar fasciitis, hip bursitis, muscle tension, hip imbalances, low back pain etc.
