40 + Year Old Runners Need To Know This Information

Are you passionate about running but hindered by joint or muscle pain?

Running is an amazingly fun activity! Unfortunately, it’s also deceptively difficult to do. 

Running appeals to many because it demands little gear and delivers a quick workout sensation. 

Some begin running in elementary school and continue because they enjoy the “runner’s high” and setting personal records. 

Those are only two of many explanations I’ve heard that inspire people to run and continue doing so. 

Sadly, I often learn about their love of running after they’ve had to give it up because of an injury. 

Running requires considerable strength, endurance, and technique to avoid injury. Did you just add “specifically at my age” to the end of that phrase?

Those in their twenties have the advantage of youthful healing powers. 

Regardless of your age, the same factors – strength, flexibility, and running form – determine the risk of injury and recovery.   

To increase your chances, prioritize good nutrition, hydration, and wearing supportive shoes. 

Running can cause muscle or joint pain that is frequently disregarded until it becomes too severe to ignore. 

Are you wondering why….

👉  You have foot pain while you run? 

👉 Your knee hurts or swells while running? 

👉  Your back hurts when you run? 

👉 Your ITBand issue keeps coming back? 

👉 You have the same joint or muscle pain from running, no matter how much you rest?  

If you’re determined to keep running and avoid the inconvenience of seeing the Orthopedic Doctor, who might recommend injections or surgery, then this offer is tailormade for you. 

Dr. Molly developed a 30 min “Running Form screening” with your needs in mind. Many runners delay seeking professional help until they have very few options left, and she has witnessed this countless times. The sooner you seek help for joint pain or stiffness while running, the faster you’ll recover. If you’re pushing through annoying or uncomfortable pain while running, we strongly recommend signing up for this screening to help you run without worry or limitation.

If you’ve been training for months to boost either your distance or your speed, but still cannot run at the level you aspire to, then this is for you.

Running is addictive! Particularly when you notice improvements in your running skills. As an example, when I began running at 25 years old, I recall struggling to catch my breath while attempting to run for just 30 seconds. I distinctly remember the first time I ran for a full 30 minutes without stopping. I experienced both extreme excitement and nausea, haha. 

No matter how hard I trained, I couldn’t break the 4-mile mark in a single run, six months later. I also could only get to 4 miles once a week, no matter how much I pushed, I was simply couldn’t run any farther.

After conducting research and trying out different training approaches. I’ve discovered a method to enhance my running technique and reduce injuries. 

I’ve been able to run multiple 10K races with no problems, at a pace that exceeds my expectations. 

This sparked my love to help other runners achieve their goals. 

Running is a complex task. It demands strength, flexibility, and correct technique. 

In most running programs, the primary emphasis is on the gradual increase in running duration from 30 seconds to 30 minutes, with a limited discussion on the significance of a comprehensive strengthening and stretching regimen. They all completely ignore the importance of knowing how to run. 

Achieving your running goals is possible by focusing on one of these 5 aspects.

🏃‍♀️ Improving Strength 

🏃‍♀️ Improving flexibility

🏃‍♀️ Practicing Proper

🏃‍♀️ Running Mechanics

🏃‍♀️ Shock Absorption

Do you find yourself frustrated because you can’t seem to break the pace you’ve been stuck at for months or even years? 

Do you have the desire to run a 5K, 10K, half or full marathon, but find it impossible to reach that distance despite your training efforts?

 Dr. Molly’s “Running Form Screening” can assist you in reaching your goals. By conducting a brief physical exam and observing your running for a few minutes, she can determine the root cause of any obstacles. If you’re training hard but not seeing results, this screening will help you eliminate guesswork and stress from your training, enabling you to reach your goals!
