“Global News: A lot of coaches will advise people who want to take up running that if you want to get better at running, run more. What’s your problem with that approach?
Jeff Horowitz:Well, that’s certainly true up to a certain point. With many things, a little is good, a little more is better. But then a lot more is not helping and a lot more than that actually can be quite detrimental. There’s a lot of research now that’s suggesting that weekly mileage that’s more than about 35 miles a week increases the risk of injury tremendously… I love running myself and I want everyone to discover that for themselves and find the same passion for it that I have – but at the same time recognize that there’s a smart way of doing this that will prevent us from getting hurt.”
