Dr. Redtights WTM Tip: Pain is your friend, Not Painkillers

By |January 12th, 2016|

Both in training and in racing, I think of three categories of pain that are important to learn how to distinguish. I call them 1) expected pain, 2) manageable pain and 3) injury. These types of pain are your friends because they tell you what’s going on with your body, so you can know what to do. I say “learn” because initially it can be hard to distinguish between them.
