When beginner runners don’t succeed, it’s usually the result of one of two problems:
- They get injured and conclude their bodies can’t handle it.
- They don’t enjoy running; they dread the workouts.
When you do it the way I’ve set out in this series, there is no doubt but that you’ll feel good during and after the workouts, mentally and physically. That’s a given, but I’m sure you’re wanting to know what you can do to run healthy and prevent running injuries. That is the topic of this episode.
If you’ve gotten to this point, you’ve heard me say, repeatedly, that you must progress at a gradual pace and that you should listen to your body and be okay with doing the same workout for a week or so, until it’s no longer challenging.
Of course, I have many more points to make about the path to avoiding running injuries.Stitcher Radio
