More strengthening exercises will mean less visits to the Physical Therapist
As I am preparing to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, I am hiking at least 20 miles every weekend. On Sunday evening I am sore everywhere, so I protect my legs and knees during the week by performing strengthening exercises. Runners World has a great video that explains where 'knee pain' REALLY comes from and offers a few exercises to strengthen legs.
I am not a medical professional. I am a long distance runner living in Troy, NY that is interested in improving her athletic performance through proper training and nutrition to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro in July 2014. Any information on this site is mean to complement, not replace, the advice of a physician.
I started this unfunded blog to share advice I have found with fellow amateur runners and hikers. I am open to receiving and reviewing running, hiking and nutrition products. Please contact me at lisson at gmail dot com. Any claims I make about the performance of any item or commercial product are based upon my personal experiences with the product. If I have received the product for free (versus purchasing it with my own money), I will state it in my review.
