Lisa Posnett is a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist who works at Pure Sports Medicine (puresportsmed.com). She is a keen marathon and ultramarathon runner and has a special interest in running injury rehabilitation and prevention.

About Women’s Running

In the September issue of Women’s Running, we want you to banish the guilt and claim your running for you! We look at some incredible locations where you can regroup, get some me-time, and run your socks off. Go on - you deserve it. If you’re looking to push your training to the next level, we’ve got the ultimate introduction to triathlon, and how a bit of swimming and cycling can benefit your running in so many ways. And now that it’s back to school time, we’ve also included a no-time 10K training plan, for those of us with more than one schedule to juggle. Plus, we speak to the incredible and inspirational Anna McNuff, who is currently mid-way through a 2,620-mile tour of Britain - on foot, and barefoot. As a Girlguiding ambassador, she’s on a mission to inspire girls everywhere to be brave and seek adventure.
