EAT AND RUN FOR STRONGER BONES
Impact injuries such as stress fractures are all too familiar to runners. While strength training can help build stronger bones, diet has the biggest impact, according to a study by the University of Michigan, US. Lazier runners will be chuffed to hear a calciumrich diet alone benefits bone strength, even without exercising. But before you throw away your running shoes and open a packet of cheese, it’s worth noting that the bone-strengthening effects are amplified when diet and exercise are combined.
