This can often be a 6 to 8 week injury to heal. This precludes the training required for the event and coming back too soon can lead to recurrent and actually a worse injury. A good course of physical therapy with a pt that understands the injury is beneficial. ...Read more

How many miles to run a day?

How many miles to run a day?

I actually dissent: Having run for forty years, i believe that running does not have to cause injury if there is no intenal pathology. I would start slow with a walk/ run combo.

Oviously the speed will naturally increase with a training effect. ...Read more
