Ugh, I had a tibial stress fracture last winter that really took a toll on me. Agreed on the “trying to cram in training” thing. Running is such a long-game kind of sport, your legs will really let you know it if you’re trying to do too much too soon. For me, I was going from running 3 times a week to 5 with both added days being speedwork. I made this transition pretty foolishly and didn’t do anything to step-up to this new regimen and ended up sidelining myself in the process. I think the biggest thing for me is remembering that when practiced consciously, running can be a lifelong sport in a way most traditional sports aren’t.
