#312 Injured runner underdog advantage

In the pursuit of any running goal you really are only in competition with yourself.

When you become injured, you immediately give yourself an underdog status.

You start to think about all of the problems that your injury presents to prevent you from completing the workouts that you previously believed would make it possible for you to achieve your goal.

Of course, none of that is true. All of those problems we call “reasons” are really just excuses.

There is always a way.

One thing I know for sure. Every runner I have ever worked with you got injured and then set a new P.R. working from an underdog advantage.

Today on the Doc On The Run podcast, we’re talking about what Ironman taught me about running injuries.
