Conditioning Your Body For Long Distance Running
Long Distance Running
According to a study published in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport, a correlation was found between higher running volume and weekly frequency with running injuries. In addition, having adequate experience can minimise running injuries.
Get your body accustomed to a certain distance
If you are new to running, or new to marathons, it is important to get used to running a certain distance about three to four times a week before increasing the distance further.
Pace your runs
Running every other day is also suggested in order to avoid increasing distance too rapidly. Tracking your runs and recovery sessions is also useful in planning future sessions.
Running injuries can arise from inadequate stretching, improper running form or pace, and other training errors. Click here to find out more on how you can prevent running injuries. “How To Condition Your Body For Long Distance Running“
