Runners Connect podcast on training, injuries, and physiology

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Lucas Felten of for their regular podcast on all things running related.  Over the course of the 45-minute interview, we talked about the science behind why runners get injured, what you can do to prevent injuries yourself, and how to go about training the right way.  It's great to get an opportunity to articulate my philosophy about how to approach training for distance runners and to spread the word about avoiding injury.  We also talked about physiology, threshold training, and my book, Modern Training and Physiology for Middle and Long Distance Runners.
