In all recreational and competitive running events from your first 5K to a marathon or Spartan Ultra Beast, athletes tend to get injured. Generally injuries come about when the weekly mileage increases along with the intensity. Our host Richard Diaz, founder of diaz human performance and The Natural Running Network, has a long history of training runners to perform optimally with his unique approach to what he refers to as “Motor Skill Drills”. Diaz feels that the key to running fast and avoiding injuries is directly tied to the way you run not how much or how hard you run.
