Running Slow with Knee Pain to Feeling Strong and Crushing her First Marathon with Kristi Paishon

 

 

Have you ever injured your knee before or had knee pain and you went to the doctor and they told you to stop running?  

 

Did you follow their recommendation, go to PT, go see a chiropractor, and then even after you took 4 weeks or even 8 weeks off from running the pain was still there?  

 

Have you been told that your only option at that point is a PRP injection?   

 

Today’s interview with Kristi is going to be helpful for you if you ever struggled with knee pain before that limited you from running or getting in those lunges during your strength work or if you just feel to too slow to ever be able to run a marathon. 

 

 

Listen to the Podcast Episode during your next run!

 

Kristi is just one of our SPARK winners from our Healthy Runner Coaching Program who has just accomplished some amazing things with her running and health.  I just needed to get her on our LIVE show to share her tips with many of you who may be struggling with similar issues.

 

If you are a runner who is worried you may do long term damage to your knee but still want to maintain your connections and meet up with your mom groups,  challenge yourself physically, and needs some guidance then this is just what you need to provide you some hope!

You can teach an old dog new tricks!!!  I have never considered myself a runner and I knew I needed to be smart about it because I am no spring chicken. Spark preached getting strong and healthy to be injury free and they practice what they preach.  I am soooo glad I made the investment in me!  I finished my half marathon last weekend and couldn’t be any happier!  The program fed me all the steps I needed to essentially learn how to run long distance, build strength, nutrition help, a forum of other runners and probably most important was the 1:1 coaching.  I had no idea how to tackle training for a 1/2 marathon and this program broke all of it down, had it individualized for me and we tweaked as we went to make sure I was staying healthy and strong.  I had so many questions the week prior to my race and Coach Cat was always there for me and answering all the questions and issues I had-and believe me there were a lot!  The biggest benefit I think I got was the strength. I am strong and fit. But most important was what I gained emotionally.  I built confidence and strength I didn’t know I had, even at my age.  Honestly could not have done this without Spark Healthy Runners!

My Healthy Runner journey started after I had battled bilateral achilles pain for a few months and was frustrated how it affected my running. As soon as I talked to Duane I knew I had made the right decision. His positivity, enthusiasm and genuine care are infectious. The training plan that was tailored to me included specific exercises to rehab my injury and I was so excited that I didn’t have to stop running. It took patience to only run slow for a few weeks but I trusted the process and it got me me to where I am now: running pain free. We made adjustments to the plan throughout whenever needed having someone in your corner that is always there with guidance and support throughout the process was invaluable.

I just ran my second half marathon, both with Duane’s coaching, and PR’d by over 9 minutes! I got all choked up in the last mile when I realized that I felt strong and could still kick it up a notch.

I’m so thankful for the Healthy Runner program, community and the entire coaching team for all the support!

Wanting to run more consistently, and to increase my long run distance and total weekly mileage, I was concerned about hip pain due to hip alignment issues. This is an issue I had when I trained for my first half marathon several years ago. Having listened to the Healthy Runner podcast for the past couple years, I knew Duane Scotti could help. I signed up for the four-month strength and running training program and am extremely happy with the results.

The program Duane and Coach Whitney developed for me was exactly what I needed. It was tailored to my needs and to my target race. Coach Whitney was very helpful, and with the biweekly coaching calls, we were able to fine tune the program based off my performance and feedback.

At the end of the program, I completed a 10K trail race feeling strong and pain free.

I highly recommend Duane Scotti and the Healthy Runner training programs.
