While there are varying statements on how much protein a person needs each day, my observation is that those levels are far too low when you are injured or sick. And, they are probably too low to keep you from getting injured and sick.
Running is safe. No joint is injured solely by running, despite what you may have heard. Running only damages already damaged joints. You can run forever if you have healthy joints and good running mechanics.
We hurt ourselves while we push ourselves. We seek greater athletic glory at the expense of our bodies. We train through the pain, ignoring the warning signs of injury. We stop only when we can’t go on
