The world of running is MISTAKENLY focused on the fact that running is a dangerous sport, bad for the knees, hurts the feet or back or….??
That is complete BULLCRAP. Injuries in at least 95% of cases are not caused by Runing they are caused by
-too much running for body type
-too much running INTENSITY for body type
-too much running for lifestyle and schedule [insufficient rest]
-too much running INTENSITY for lifestyle and schedule [insufficient rest]
-Ignoring body signals
I started running in 1988 ( marine Corps marathon) I am 6’8 300lbs and had 7 knee surgeries during football days- but have never had a running injury or day off because of injury. 18 marathons, 100+ half marathons and a few Triathlons.
** Maintain a solid and stable body and injuries will be less likely
*** Prevention is the key
