If the Rome Marathon 2012 is your target, then you have for sure started to add intensity and mileage to your training. Your body won't always accept the efforts you put it through, so sometimes - despite any precaution - you may end up getting an injury. If this is your problem, or are just concerned about avoiding it, you might consider some alternative training methods to minimize the damages involved with a continous impact with the ground. Fulvio Massini tells you how in this feature. Have fun.
