8 Running “Rules” You Can Safely Ignore

Athletic man running uphill, outdoor.

Runners, new and experienced, have all heard certain “rules.” Rules like:

  • Don’t increase your mileage by more than 10% each week, and
  • Take days off from running to stay healthy.

It’s hard and fast advice on how to train, recover, and experience the sport. But can you trust them?

In today’s episode we call out some of the running advice we’ve all heard (maybe even shared), and flip it on it’s head.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • Running with headphones
  • How to increase your mileage
  • Trail running gear
  • Recovery period after a race
  • Doug’s 442 run streak
  • Minimalism vs. zero drop
