Ep 319 - Running - The Good, Bad & Ugly w/ Rushabh Savla & Adrian D’Costa (from Running Room)

Today I am joined by Rush and Adrian from R&D Physio and The Running Room. We will be diving into all things running! I have recently been running more in preparation for my Muay Thai fight, as the miles and frequency have been increasing I am being forced into focusing on optimising my technique to avoid injury and fatigue.  I took a visit to the running room and there were so many insights and takeaways I knew I needed to get them on here. So we discuss; technique, common mistakes, who should run, who shouldn’t, eating disorders and running culture. If you are interested in cardiovascular fitness or running this episode is one you won't want to miss.
