Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

‘I sorted out a knee prob­lem by go­ing on a 200km cy­cle ride. It worked, but prob­a­bly not rec­om­mended.’ – @parkrun­tourscot (Ol­lie)

‘I rubbed ba­nana into my an­kle, as I had read some­where that it had nat­u­ral anal­gesic ef­fects.’ – Iain Davies-Moore

‘I ate a tub of Ben and Jerry’s. An­kle stayed swollen but I felt bet­ter.’ – Adam Newell

‘Rolled my hus­band’s calf in­jury with my rolling pin.’ – Bev­er­ley Mor­ritt

‘Run­ning on the beach, I felt my quad ex­plode and im­me­di­ately took a left turn into the sea un­til I was up to my waist. Still in trainers and kit. It hurt for days

but I reckon I’d have been laid up for a week or two if I hadn’t done that.’ – Craig Daniel Arnold

‘I rubbed tooth­paste into my Achilles ten­don.’ – James Hamil­ton

‘Put tooth­paste on my blis­ters to dry them out.’ – Su­san Mer­kett

‘Frozen sprouts on a knee in­jury (there were no peas).’ – @IainMcNeilage

‘I put Ud­der­mint [used to soothe cows’ ud­ders] on what I thought was a mus­cle in­jury. Turned out it was a break but it still took the pain away. It’s amaz­ing!’ – Teresa Ram­say
