This week we tackle a few running myths! You know the ones; running is bad for your knees, your back, you need loads of water to run, runners should breath through their nose etc etc! Alison has been doing the research to bust the myths and she shares her findings and we chat about this. Here are some links to the various articles and publications Alison talks about:

Effects of Running on the Development of Knee Osteoarthritis: An Updated Systematic Review at Short-Term Follow-up  Dhillon et al 2023

BMC Sports Sci Med Rehabil.

Lörinczi, et al

Almond et al (2005)
