Training Before Training: The 60% Rule

If you’re getting ready to start running and training for a race, you must follow the 60% rule.

As a Physical Therapist, I see most runners getting injured or sore between weeks four and eight of their training plan. Why? It’s because they started training without a foundation of fitness, strength, and consistency. For these injured runners, they weren’t ready for the pounding and strain that accompanies running.

Whether you’re eyeing up a new PR, running a new distance, or just looking to get fit again, you must start your training from solid ground — and if you can’t, that you take it extra slow.

Watch this video to learn more. You will learn about the 60% rule for starting a training cycle so you can avoid injury, feel great running, and run faster on race day.
