Running can be a great thing. It can be relaxing while providing great exercise at the same time. However, running injuries can be a problem for many people. Some of the most common ways people feel pain from running include Runner’s knee (when the kneecap is out of alignment), shin splints, Achilles tendinitis, pulled muscles, stress fractures, sprains, heel pain (plantar fasciitis), and blisters. Resting your feet for a while can resolve most of these conditions. Allowing your feet to take a break and fully recover is very important to avoid sustaining an injury.
