RE: How fast can I get off 2-3 runs per week?

You might have this covered but in regards to your injuries a couple of things come up that greatly impact those that are injury prone. So, I can't help but ask anyway:

- Do you do something to strengthen your hip stability muscles? Most don't and it's only a three minute per day exercise.

- Have you had your form analyzed? I have had athletes that pronate way more on one leg than the other. I always knew which leg their injuries would pop up on.

- Most overlooked item for any athlete I have ever coached is lack of sleep / poor diet / alcohol etc. I can write a book on how this will catch up to you. If you are not recovering between workouts then you have to wait another day to do them. It's that simple. You will not adapt to the one you did, and will not build on it for the next one even if you're not injured. For most college kids it's I had to finish a project, study for an exam so I got little sleep. I hear you, but now you have to put off that workout.

Thanks for the advice but yeah I've went down all those paths and have taken care of those items. It pains me the most that so many of my teammates can get away with treating their body so poorly and still run decent (alcohol, poor diet, etc).
