“The first episode I listened to was with Dr. Zoffness and I don’t think I have ever heard that perspective. Not knowing a lot of runners, I felt crazy how much an injury would impact my quality of life. I’m in my early 20s and have had injuries over the past four years. When I’ve tried telling others how much injuries affect me and how afraid I am of getting them, I felt like others who have not experienced it or do not use exercise as a coping mechanism, don’t really understand.
I’m beginning to notice how much more aware I am of the muscles that have been injured. When Dr.Zoffness spoke of getting better at feeling pain in areas that you’ve hurt, it made perfect sense. When I see people jump or do strenuous activities involving their knees or ankles, I can actually feel that same spot in my body ache. I am so thankful to have been giving this new perspective on pain, running, and how it can control your mental health. Great podcast.”
