To get straight to the point: sitting for prolonged periods of time is bad for your health: sitting is the new smoking. On average we spend 12 hours a day in a seated position and we should not underestimate the physical consequences. Add 8 hours of sleep to those already existing 12 hours or sitting, and you spend a total of 20 hours a day in a seated or lying position.
Nothing is worse than having to stop running due to aches, pains and injuries. A very common running injury that we see at our practice AmstelFysio is the runner’s knee, which is characterized by pain on the outside of your knee. This type of pain can happen to every runner, whether you’re a novice runner or an experienced one, and is one of the most frequently reported running injuries.
