hmmmm

were all the injuries on your right leg? if so you really need to be careful about your form and slow way down at first until you feel like you are using your quads and gluts more (they dont get injured as much....foot injuries are usually from catching your footstrike instead of letting your heel hit and catching the downward force with your quad in my experience). Run 5 out of 7 days alone so you dont get dragged into someone else's pace....or run with someone who is not that fast.

I would just focus on putting together a 60 mile week healthy at first. Then add in quality...you have plenty of time between now and January to sharpen up for a 3-4 week indoor season.


the nerve injury was in my right leg, outside of my calf, the stress fracture was my left foot, 2nd metatarsal. ive been doing drills usually everyday, high knees, to kick out's, to butt-kicks, and then the "every third step rotation of leg one." (not sure what its called)
