July 12, 2023

In this podcast episode, I chat with running coach and the founder of Strength Running, Jason Fitzgerald.

Not only is Jason a 2:39 marathon runner and USATF-certified running coach - he recently coached me to a PR in the half marathon.

I hope you enjoy our chat and if you have any questions, please leave them in the comments.

In this podcast we talk about:

  • Why mainstream media advice is off the mark with most of its running injury advice.
  • The most common mistakes when it comes to injury prevention.
  • The #1 thing a runner can do to stay healthy and keep running.
  • Why injury prevention should be an integral part of your training program.
  • Jason's favorite exercises when it comes to injury prevention.
  • How to tell the difference between "good" pain and "bad" pain (and when to back-off your training).
  • Running shoes - how running shoes fit into the injury prevention equation for runners.
  • Jason's Injury Prevention for Runners program.
