8. Manage Longer Training Distances
Ultrarunners suffer the most injuries, due to the high mileage and instances of overuse and overtraining. Don’t just grind through long runs: More mileage doesn’t necessarily mean faster, better progress. The risk of injury increases as training distances increase—so think twice before pushing yourself through back-to-back double-digit days. Listen to your body, dial up the distance slowly, and incorporate cross-training to mitigate the risks of long-distance training.
