In lesson two I chat with Greg Lehman. Greg is a Physiotherapist, Chiropractor, Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Spine and Exercise Biomechanics Expert.

In the clinic, Greg focuses on running injury mechanics, sport injuries, persistent pain problems and post surgical rehabilitation. Greg completed his Master of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo under the supervision of Dr. Stuart McGill.

In this podcast you will learn:

  • Why strength training is just as important for beginners as it is for elite runners.
  • The types of strength training exercises new runners should be focusing on.
  • Is stretching beneficial and if so, when is the best time to stretch?
  • What you can do to improve your running form (with some specific drills to practice).
  • How to distinguish between "good pain" and "bad pain".
  • The most common injury Greg sees in new runners and best practices to help you avoid injury.
  • Greg's general tips for new runners to help stay motivated and injury free.
