What Causes Plantar Fasciitis and How do I Get Rid of It?
Written by Nuno Costa

One of the more common injuries with running is Plantar Fasciitis and it shows up in the form of heel pain (you will know it if you have it).

The thick band of tissue, which is called the plantar fascia, runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to the toes. When you have plantar fasciitis that thick band of tissue becomes inflamed.

Do You Need to Warm Up for Running?
Written by Nuno Costa

You get up, you get your shoes on and then off you go for a run. That’s the beauty of running! You don’t need much in terms of equipment, you don’t need to rely on anyone but yourself and you can generally do it anytime you want. The ease of being able to get in a run session is very nice but there is a catch twenty-two, and that is athletes being careless and not taking the time to properly warm up before they go out for a run.
