Running With Balance

Terry Sullivan /

Have you ever seen someone running with an armband carrying their music? If so, you will probably have noticed how one arm does not swing as freely as the other. When running long distance this little arm swing imbalance can add up to a repetitive use injury by simply being out of balance.

I am not suggesting you need to stop listening to music but you need to be in tune with your body. Pay attention to your arm swing and make sure you are close to even. Every now and then switch which arm you have it on.

Lastly try running without music on your arm on your next run. There are great running belts and other options to keep your more balanced. You may find with both arms swinging freely you will be faster and feel better.

Good Luck see you soon!
