Understanding the Causes of Pain:

Training for a fun run involves repetitive movements and increased physical exertion, which can put stress on your muscles, joints, and ligaments. Common causes of pain and injury during running include:

Overuse Injuries: Repeated stress on specific muscles or joints without adequate rest and recovery can lead to overuse injuries such as shin splints, runner's knee, or Achilles tendonitis.

Muscle Imbalances: Weakness or tightness in certain muscle groups can disrupt biomechanics and lead to compensatory movements, increasing the risk of injury.

Poor Running Form: Incorrect posture or technique while running can place excessive strain on certain areas of the body, causing pain and discomfort over time.
