......but first if you're biggest challenge with running is dealing with injuries.....
Then you're probably tired of people telling you to "stop running." Or maybe you tried numerous remedies to injury proof your body, only to have the same pain return or worse, a new ache in a different part of your body.
Whether injuries occur when weekly mileage begins to exceed 25-35 miles or when hill or speed workouts are completed, The fact is, it's common that the inability to avoid injuries or quickly recovery from them prevents many middle age runners from achieving their goals.
Trust me, I completely know what this feels like.

Which is why I put together a book covering everything you need to know to train for a 1/2 or full marathon step-by-step.

If you're experiencing what amounts to an over training injury, there are three basic approaches you can take to rehab:
- Spread forces which will increase the stresses on other structures of your body, instead of the injured structure. This often means participating in exercises that are non weight bearing, like stationary bike, swimming or eliptical.
- Decrease the stress enough to allow healing to occur. The easiest way to do this is rest, but most runners would rather reduce the amount of running, run on different/softer surfaces, or run on flat surfaces. Identify how you can best continue to run, just keep the mileage down at first and observe if your injury heals.
- Increase your body’s capacity for recovery and healing. Don't just think about typical stressors like distance, speed and equipment like shoes. Consider changing nutritional, environmental and physchological stressors as well. The fact is, that traveling across the country, eating poorly, lack of sleep or enduring a lot of stress at your job can wear your body down and make it more susceptable to injury.
If you are injured, I believe you need to learn how to work around the pain if you want to keep running. The rule of thumb I get from medical professionals whom I know well and trust, is that unless the injury is causing you to change your gait or compensate in some unusual way, you typically don’t have to stop running. However, ultimately, you need to trust your instincts. You may have to simply "back off" and engage in non-impact exercises like swimming, elliptical, rowing and stationary bike. A sports doctor, physical therapist or trainer can help assign some "safe" workouts.
In these cases, you simply have to think through the issue or consult with a knowledgable coach to find a way that you can cut back on the stressors that may have caused the injury or pain in the first place. Identifying these creative solutions will help you speed the rate of healing without overdoing it.
For example, if have Achilles pain that comes after hill repeats. Do less hill repeats and run on flat surfaces until the pain goes away. In the meantime, you'll also need to identify other possible causes of the pain and rehab/strengthen as appropriate. This is where trained medical professionals, running coaches or even qualified trainers come in.
