June 30, 2006, Newsletter Issue #22: Be Smart Before Anything Breaks

Tip of the Week

Tough: falling over a hurdle or no-heighting in the high jump. Worse: running too hard in the first mile of a 2-mile race ending in a walk across the finish line. Worst: being injured.

So called “failures” or difficulties can teach and athlete as much or more than winning. Injuries, especially over use or ignored small injuries over time are the hardest issues to deal with when running or coaching track and field.

Getting injured only teaches athletes that being injured is the pits. Teach athletes to learn how to prevent injuries and stay healthy in their lives and in their sports, and they will never have to recover from a lesson not learned soon enough.
