Minimising Injury for Runners

The key to having an injury-free program is to ensure that we are giving the body a number of different stimuli (i.e., different surfaces, distances, speeds, terrain etc.) and adequate rest/recovery.

The best way to do this is to monitor what we do during each run and by sticking to a training program – this allows both sufficient loads to promote adaptation (i.e. muscle strength / speed improvements) and adequate rest to allow the adaptation to occur.
