Top 10 Tips To Avoid Injury

The other day, one of the athlete's I work with, emailed to let me know that her foot was sore when she got up for her run, so she rode the bike instead. It was such a brilliant move, I almost couldn't believe what I was reading.

Let's Talk Sleep!

As athletes, most of us focus on how to work harder so that we can get stronger and faster. We want to run more miles, do more tempo runs, spend more time in the weight room (okay, maybe not), and make our long runs even longer and harder. I can relate, as I am one of these people! But very few focus, REALLY focus on the tools of recovery, which are just as important a piece of the puzzle as training.

C is for Critical Volume

Several weeks ago, my husband ran the Harrisburg Marathon.  It was his eleventh 26.2er and so, while I wouldn't say he is a VERY experienced marathoner, he has been around the block a time or two.  His PR is 2:59:12, which he set at this year's Boston Marathon.  

Going into Harrisburg, my husband aimed to run under 2:55.  But he also took on some new responsibilities (namely, coaching a high school cross country team) that limited the amount of time he could train.  Instead of the 60 mile per week that he put in for Boston, he averaged in the 40 mile per week range.  He made sure to get a good long run in each weekend, but slacked (his own words) on his weekday running, usually never getting above 5 or 6 miles on a given day.  As the fall progressed, he was starting to question the idea of a 2:55 and wondered if perhaps he should pursue a less aggressive goal.  But then a funny thing happened.  He ran two lead-up races, one 10K and one 5K, and he ran them both superbly.  In the 10K, he ran very close to what he thought was an untouchable PR and in the 5K he DID PR, by almost 15 seconds.  Perhaps he was in better shape than he thought!  Perhaps 2:55 WAS an appropriate goal.  2:55 or bust!
