Racing and Feeling Great

I love to run. But running can be challenging on the body and can lead to stubborn injuries that won’t disappear.  In the past, my running speeds were always determined by old injuries.  Whether a knee or a foot or a back.  This makes it frustrating to race as you always feel that you weren’t able to compete at your best.

Fortunately, I have a great team of health professionals in Mississauga that were able to help me race injury free!  The limiting factor in my most recent race, the Sulphur Springs Trail race, was my fuel and not a knee, foot, or my back!  Thank you to all those that helped me lead up to this race:

Our foot specialist Kiran helped me recover from a foot injury from a previous race in April.
Our Massage therapist Sandra helped me keep my ITB (IT band) moving well.
Our Naturopaths Kirsten and Tiffany helped me with my recovery times!
My Chiropractors kept my spine and nerves on point and recovering quickly!
And my family, for allowing me to run during nap time!

At this trail race in Ancaster, there were people running this 20 Km loop 4 times, 8 times, and 16 times!  The amount of effort that this required is incredible and it was impressive to run on the course with them.  As you can imagine, healing time is incredibly important for the training and racing for these competitors.

If you are competing or racing in Mississauga and need a team of health professionals to compete at your best, we are here to help!

Looking forward to the next race,

Dr. Callum Peever
