Today, Brodie answers these listener questions:
1.) "If an experienced runner is forced into taking downtime for either an unrelated injury, illness, or just life getting in the way for an extended period of time, how slow should the “come back” be when they start running again?"
2.) "Can you highlight some common cross-training injuries? Especially like cycling/swimming as injured runners tend to turn to them, so to prevent them getting an overuse injury as well from cross-training?"
3.) "In a situation where a beginner runner is dealing with very tight calves muscles due to weakness and is recommended strengthening such as calves raises. What do you do when the muscles feel even worst?"
4.) "I'm following a running program from 80/20 Endurance that plans 5-6 running days per week. That's too much because I'm currently running 3 days per week with strength training 3 days, opposite to running days. If I want to increase to 4 or 5 running days per week how should I maintain the strength training?"
