What is impact tolerance and why is it important?

Impact tolerance is your ability to handle the pounding exerted during running. Impact is significant during running and people typically do not spend enough time increasing their ability to handle impact. Tolerance to impact needs to happen gradually and progressively. Some of the most common running injuries are due to low impact tolerance. If you are new to running I strongly recommend that you complete the B78 three-week introduction to running program first.
