Healthy Runner Podcast

Sep 9, 2021

Do you have stiffness in the back of your ankle around your achilles and up into your calf first thing in the morning or at the start of your runs?


Have you tried ice, rest, and not training for the race you really want to do because you have or had achilles tendonitis before?


In this LIVE interview, Lisa Glover is going to share how she overcame this common/ stubborn running injury.


Lisa is open about the struggles she was going through trying to stay healthy, starting out as a new runner during the pandemic but couldn't run because of her achilles pain.


She then will share her story of what helped most in getting over this condition and how she is running double digit long runs for the first time in her life!


If you are struggling with any running related injury whether it is achilles tendon pain, hamstring tendon pain, runners knee, ITB syndrome, or plantar fasciitis you will be inspired by Lisa’s story and be able to take some pointers from this conversation on how you can start feeling better now! 


If you are a runner who is determined to run, and will not take no for an answer, and you don’t want to be told to stop running AND you don’t mind putting in the work to get better then the specific strategies Lisa shares with you will be help!
