More On Injury Prevention

Nobody I know who is involved in fitness or training likes to be laid up with an injury. In fact, most active people I know get pretty frustrated when an injury occurs.

A few weeks back, I wrote about what to do in the case of injury. But what steps can you take to avoid injury on the front end? Well, I think I may have some helpful information. I stumbled upon an article about a book written by an accomplished British distance runner, Sam Murphy, that discusses proactive injury preventing in-depth.

Additionally, Dagny Scott Barrios, a regular contributor to Runner's World, published a book titled "The Runner’s World Guide To Injury Prevention". I have this book at home and it is loaded with helpful injury prevention information. If you don't think you have time to read Scott Barrios' book, then check out her article "Safe and Sound" at

These may be additional helpful references in the constant pursuit to avoid the "injury bug".
