I'm halfway to my goal of running for a year without injury. And I'm running more miles per week than I used to. A couple weeks ago, I ran 26 miles, including an 11.4-mile long run. This week I hope to run 29.
Reasons why I'm not hurt:
- Slowly building up the mileage.
- Sticking to the run/walk method.
- Running slowly.
- Running mostly on grass and trails.
In fact, I'm even starting to think maybe I'm on a path toward an ultra.
