I do believe I shocked a few people in the park when I catapulted myself from a leisurely stroll into a 6 second all out sprint today. I repeated this 5 times and couldn't manage anymore. I have managed to hurt my ankle in the process, and I assuming that this is due to a combination of being 218lbs and poor running technique, although I have no idea how I am *supposed* to run to prevent injury. I was wearing good running trainers, and I do intend to buy some barefoot shoes, but I wouldn't expect just five six-second sprints in trainers to cause this level of injury. Incidentally, I also found that I hurt my wrist after just 15 wall press ups (slightly inclined), which still hurts after 10 days. What can I do about this? I don't want to keep breaking myself every time I try to do some exercise.
No announcement yet.
