So many people suffer from aches and pains like shin splints, lower back pain, knee pain (to name a few) which if not corrected, will eventually lead to fatigue and possible injury. If you suffer from rounded shoulders this will inhibit the amount of oxygen the body can take in which will result in a build up of lactic acid. This will undoubtedly decrease the mileage you are able to achieve. This is only one example where posture can affect your ability to run long distance.

Running with an injury can initiate the Cumulative Injury Cycle. The cumulative injury cycle starts with one injury and eventually can lead to another elsewhere within the kinetic chain (the body). If one part of the kinetic chain has been injured then other muscles will compensate to keep the kinetic chain functioning. This can trigger injury/injuries in other parts of the kinetic chain due to the abnormal stress being placed on it.
