Almost every runner has experienced muscle cramps while running at one time or another, especially if you get muscle cramps while running a marathon or after running in the summer.
I’ve heard countless stories from friends, family, and clients about cramping up in the last few miles of a marathon and barely being able to even walk.
Sometimes the cramps can be worked out, but often they persist and there are no strategies for overcoming muscle cramps while running that can save the race….or even the entire training season.
The most frustrating thing may be that they can come out of nowhere, and what causes muscle cramps while running is somewhat unknown.
My readings and research have unveiled two distinct types of cramps during exercise:
Muscle overloading and fatigue cramps from overuse. The cramping is painful in the muscle (often the calf muscle) that is being overworked.
Electrolyte imbalance muscle cramps that develop due to extensive sweating and low sodium.
These cramps may occur even if there is no muscle overuse and cramping may occur in multiple muscle groups.
It is important to determine which type of cramp you are experiencing or are prone to getting, so you can prevent muscle cramps while running. In this article, we will take a closer look at the two types and recommend our favorite remedies for muscle cramps as well as what to do to avoid muscle cramps after running in the future.
