In this episode:

It has long been held that what surface you run on is a major contributor to injuries in running. Harder surfaces lead to more injuries than softer ones. Or is the other way around? Is it possible that we have this upside down? Newer analyses and thinking on this matter posits that in fact, the biomechanics of running on softer surfaces might actually be worse for injuries than when running on harder ones. I look at the research and give you the inside scoop. Plus, a wide ranging conversation with six time Kona champion and legend in the sport, Dave Scott.

Segments:

[04:40]- The relationship between running surfaces and running injuries
