Running Injury Prevention Tip: Don't Force It

By July 16, 2013

Follow me on:

One of the most important rules of running is to listen to your body. Don't push through a hard workout if you're feeling pain because you think missing a workout means you won't reach your race goal. And don't try to get your weekly mileage done no matter what. I always like to tell runners I coach, "You can't get to the finish line if you don't get to the starting line." Resting when an injury is in its early stages will prevent more time off later. If you push through it, the injury will most likely get worse.
