Running is different for everyone, build up your base over time, and listen to your body. If you're getting hurt a lot, consider changing some things.
Transcript: "Ed, it's a great question. Thanks for asking. Is it safe to run 100 miles plus per week? And the answer is that I love running, and I love my patients to run all the time. But running is a different thing for every single person. Some people are built to run 100 miles a week, some people are built to run 15 miles a week, and there's not a one size fits all. So my main advice on how much running is healthy for you is, number one, building up too quickly is not great. So you want to build up your base over time. We call that something the acute to chronic workload ratio. And if your acute to chronic workload ratio is skewed, meaning you're trying to load in too many miles too quickly, you'll get hurt. So you don't want to start at 100. You want to start slow. And then in pre, you want to recognize what kind of body do you have. Do you have a body that can hold up to a lot of miles? What are your hips like, your knees? What about your stride, your strength? There are so many factors we think about when we talk to people about keeping them running healthily. So I'd like for you to think about all those things. And those are things that somebody like me will look at and try and figure out when you come see us. So there's not a one-size-fits-all. Listen to your body. And if you're getting hurt a lot, meaning if you're hurting all the time, you definitely want to look at the things that you need to start thinking about changing. And I'm sure I'll talk about those in the questions ahead."
