I've read in a couple of publications that 60% of runners will incur an injury each year. I'm not sure how they define injury, but I thought a little poll might shed some light on the truth of that statistic.

For 6 1/2 years and 7,000 miles, I would have voted invincible, but this week I need to wait and see before I vote.

I injured myself after then 2003 LR Marathon, and it took me about 4 months to recover! Being injured SUCKS!

This year I finally seemed to be getting over a pulled left hamstring that nagged me for almost 2 years. The pain went over to the right hip. Then after the Lum and Abner 5K at Mena in June, I couldn't run the next day, hip flexor was killing me!! I took off a week, but it still hurts. I run though it. I'm sure it will go away sooner or later, and the pain will show up somewhere else. Seems like I overcompensate for one injury and create another. That's the only bad thing about running.

Injuries are so closely tied to weekly mileage. This month's Runners World talks about that. Seems that the 40-50 mile range, depending on age, is a cutoff for avoiding injury -- most are stress induced. That is my weekly max (40-50) during marathon training. So maybe I've been lucky 8) , stupid rolling eyes: , or lazy Embarassed (compared to some of you 80-100 weekly mileage runners), but I've not suffered any injuries in three years of running to put me off the road. I've had some aches and pains, though... :evil: plenty of them! If they seem bad, I will add an extra day or two of rest.

Ok, so I come from the opposite end of running philosophy. Very Happy More smart running equals the proper amount of stress on your muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, etc., thus causing them to become stronger and resistant to injury. The added benefit of more running is more cardio training. I know some of you are thinking I am just a hypocrite, but c'mon. I have the same amount of injury as anyone. I guarantee Tom Aspel runs more miles per week than I do - and I don't think that he suffers from any more injuries than I do. What it basically comes down to is being smart and relaxed about your running in whatever volume you are practicing - 20, 30, 40, 50, or 100 miles per week, no difference. :) One who is under a heavier training load, obviously has to be a little smarter than one under a lighter training load, but that's a no-brainer. :)

I just think everyone is different. Some people can handle 100 MPW, some can't do over 30. Some have bad body mechanics, or their body just can't handle it. But, you must train smart! Not hard every day!! A rest day can be a day of easy miles!! Buttttttttt...I just take off instead. I've seen the charts in RW about the over 40 MPW, as well as other books. I know I run better when I am training over 40 MPW, but I can still sense I am an inch away from an injury.
I still read RW, though usually just for race articles. Running Jornal and Running Times are better and more informative.

As far as I can tell, there are only four basic articles in Runner's World. I think everything they print is a basic rehash on one of the following themes:

1. Marathon finishing program based on 3 runs per week
2. New diet fad for runners
3. Celebrities that run
4. Attractive running shoes/outfits/ipods
