Gym's are closed. It is time to take up running.
If you're anything like me, staying home all day is driving you a bit crazy. While I am a firm believer in social distancing and working from home to slow the spread of the virus, my legs are restless and I need to get back to running.
For the past few months I've toned the running down to 2 x 6km warm-up sessions ahead of a gym workout plus an additional 8 - 10km session ahead of my Saturday gym session.
I never stopped running, but now, I plan on doing a little more...
And I want you to join me!
Below you will find a week by week training schedule so you have a race day to target.
Having an achievable goal is important, so a half-marathon is a great starting point.
It will be tough. But you have this in the bag.
Please keep me in the loop of your journey by tagging @thesolushin on Instagram. Good luck!
who are we? what is the solushin?
As former athletes, we frequently suffered from overuse injuries. Our team is comprised of Dr William McNamara, a former national finalist 400m runner; Rosa Miller, a national finalist gymnast; and myself, Ben Lindsay, a national medalist and international finalist swimmer.
Despite having brilliant treatment partners, physiotherapists who dedicated their hearts and souls to get us back into training pain-free, we never succeeded at treating shin splints without massive compromise to our training.
Now medical professionals, we are dedicated to helping the brilliant treatment partners that we had (they helped us design and build this product) and athletes, just like us, treat and perform better.
Co-inventor of the Solushin
no more shin splints. only pain-free running!
easy to use
We get it, it's hard to find the time to do rehab. Simply strap it on and treat your shin splints before and after your workouts.
shin splints can take a hike
With pain relief in the short-term, and the treatment of shin splints over the long-term, tell shin splints they can't stick around.
