Running is known to be one of the most popular activities enjoyed by all people around the world. This is greatly due to the health benefits, low cost of participation and ease of implementation. Despite these health and financial benefits, running related injuries are common, with studies reporting injury incidence rates as high as 79% within a 6-month period (Lenhart et al. 2014), that is equivalent to almost 8 out of every 10 runners sustaining an injury. These statistics indicate that a training intervention is needed for all runners.
