Harvard University researchers may have found the secret to staying injury-free1. Monitoring runners over two years, they found average vertical loading rate (the rate at which impact force is applied) was lower among runners who were never injured than among those prone to injury, regardless of weight. So try to land softly. ‘If you land louder, it’s harder,’ says lead researcher Dr Irene Davis.
