From Coach Greg:
It’s now when little aches and pains can become full blown injuries. Be weary of this and take care of your body. No ache or pain should go untreated. You are becoming a finely tuned machine and you need to not only become your own mechanic but you need to schedule regular “service” with therapists to keep your body running smoothly.
Also remember that the best recovery tool you have is your bed. Thirty minutes earlier to bed pays big dividends. Focus on getting just a bit more sleep each night and you’ll be amazed at how much better your running (and life) will be.
After coaching thousands of runners, I’ve found a few traits of the successful ones:
