The old traditional high mileage models, doing predominantly long slow training sessions work to a point but often lead to a high incidence of injury, in fact over 90% of all marathon runners are injured every year according to studies. Injuries to knees rate high as do calf problems achilles, plantar fasciitis and more so is there a more effective way to train.
Why does it work when you are young doing this high mileage system but often lead to problems as the miles and years pile up and is there a better way.

I am getting my mojo back with regards to my health and running after treatment for breast cancer, I connected with Lisa as I was looking for positive influences from people who are long distance runners and understand our mindset. Lisa’s podcasts have been a key factor in getting me out of a negative space where I allowed others limiting beliefs to stop me from following my heart and what I believe is right for me. After 18 months of being in cancer recovery mode I wanted to get out of the cancer mindset and back to achieving goals that had been put aside. Listening to Pushing The Limits has put me onto other great podcasts, and in the process I have learnt so much and am on a pathway to a much better place with my mindset and health. Thanks so much Lisa for doing what you do and always being you.
