No, because I don't want to make things worse. I've sprained my ankle twice running and both times I stopped running until I could do so with no pain. I would bike instead, which didn't bother my ankle.
"Working through" an injury can cause something that would have healed quickly to spiral into something much worse, that will require more time off. I'm a big fan of listening to your body.
it depends I have and I have seriously regretted it for sure . I have a herniated disc in my neck and for the most part I always have to be aware not to hurt myself more than it already is but Ihave learned to know when to stop and how far I can push over the yrs . I still sometimes do stupid things occationally and end up flat on my back for several days but that isnt as often anymore . I dont bounce back as quickly as I used to
Depends on the injury. I hurt my back a while back and had to scale WAY back on what I did but I tried to keep moving a bit just what I was able to do, mostly just walking.
Depends what you mean by injuries.
I will work through sore muscles. I brace my ankles and wrists because they are incredibly tiny and weak. I'll be doing jumps and my right ankle in particular will just give out and I'll fall.
The exception is back pain. I don't mess around with back pain, if I feel I've tweaked something I take a hot bath, kick my feet up, and take ibuprofen. You don't mess around with back issues.
