Ever wondered how bad your niggle or injury needs to be to think about not starting (DNS) or dropping out mid-race (DNF)? And what’s the best way to ensure a quick recovery to get you back on the trails as fast as possible without losing too much fitness? Ian Sharman from Sharman Ultra Endurance Coaching has the answers in this film.

Thanks so much to Ian for sharing these great tips at UTMB 2019 where he unfortunately could not race due to an injury. The British ex-pat is based in Bend, Oregon, USA. He is the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning record holder and has won the Leadville 100 four times, along with over 50 other races from trail to road to multi-day to ultra. See Ian’s website www.sharmanultra.com/ for coaching info – his team can train clients from all over the globe.
