Easing Into Running with The 10% Rule

Avoiding Running Injuries

As a running coach I see a lot of injury is this time of year.  Many people that run inside on treadmills are now starting to head outdoors as the weather gets warmer and often don’t allow enough time for the body to adjust to the rigors of outdoor running.
Running on a treadmill is different than running outside; Most would consider running outdoors harder. Either way your body will need to adapt to the changes.  I suggest decreasing your miles by 10% for two weeks to allow your body to adjust. Then start increasing the mileage again. Always make sure your shoes are not worn out. The cushioning that a treadmill offers can often mask dead shoes. Concrete and asphalt is not so forgiving. Most quality running shoes will give you between 300 to 500 miles.  Always be sure to replace your shoes when they are worn.  Wishing you a lot of sunny enjoyable runs this spring.
Live Well,
Coach Lora
