Running Quotes About Life
Most of the studies are retrospective, looking back. A few are prospective, looking forward. Even then, they're not the gold standard, which are randomized, controlled, double blind experiments. And conflicting results make it difficult to draw meaningful conclusions. I learned, for example, that running injuries can be caused by being female, being male, being old, being young, pronating too much, pronating too little, training too much and training too little. Studies also indicate that the "wet test" doesn't help shoe selection, old shoes don't offer less cushioning than newer shoes, and leg-length discrepancies don't cause injuries but too-little sleep does.
Oh, here's good news: To get rid of blisters, you should drink less and smoke more. Clearly, the medical studies wouldn't offer much help. So I switched to Plan B: I interviewed nearly a dozen of the best running-injury experts in the world. They come from the fields of biomechanics, sports podiatry and physical therapy.

Muscles and joints need recovery time so they can recover and handle more training demands. If you rush that process, you could break down rather than build up. Running experts have recognized this problem, and long ago devised an easy-to-use percent rule: Build your weekly training mileage by no more than 10 percent per week.
If you run 10 miles the first week, do just 11 miles the second week, 12 miles the third week and so on.
