Being Underweight Can Keep Female Runners From Their Fitness Routines
Many women run to keep their weight in check, but weighing too little can be detrimental to your running routine. #Didyouknow that female runners who are underweight are more likely to suffer stress fractures and take longer to recover from stress fractures? Up to a month longer! While many people run to keep their weight in check, and lower weight often means faster times, if you don’t have a high enough BMI and muscle mass, your bones are absorbing all that pounding from running. In order to stay on the road and on your feet, maintain a healthy BMI and do strength training on your legs to create muscle to help support your bones while running!
