Thanks so much! I'll definitely try it!

Hey FruitNut,

 I have used water running before to help, not the best solution but it did help, you just cant expect to have the same muscle condition as the load bearing running would do.

hey guys! I currently have a broken foot, it should be healed in a week or two. Does anyone have any tips on getting back to distance running without re-injuring oneself? I am signed up for a half marathon in November so I was hoping to get back to things fairly quickly. Thanks!

Hey Patrick,

 Have a look at the walk run walk method by Jeff Galloway it has a few good ideas on getting to a marathon finish without killing yourself.

Regards Russell

p.s. And I'm not a great runner either. Just consistent and determined!

That's the most important, I think: consistency and determination. (And I'm big on asking God for help!)

Patrick, in my experience (2 marathons) the first time I had a knee that kept giving out, so Istopped running the 4 miles a day I was doing and then just ran the marathon.  I had pain the first five miles, then it disappeared, never to return (nor did I fall any more from the knee giving out) ever again.

Second time 4 miles a day.  You're going to love it!  I really related to the couple in Australia running a marathon a day.  It's better than being in love!

@Bekah - Merrell M-Connect, Invo8, Vivobarefoot Breatho/Trail Freak, New Balance Minimus 00mm Trail.  

@Patrick - EASY dude! :)  (www.nomeatathlete.com has some really great running programs and blog)  

Standard rule is increase distance by 10% each week, using the forth week as a rest week, by returning distance to that of the first, (the 5th week I'd repeat the same distance as the 3rd). If at any point you feel overly fatigued just add in a rest week there and then, then up the milage every two weeks instead of every week, and take it from there.  Upping the distance like this will also show up the issues with your running form. Learn good form...and get a foam roller! :)
