Listen To The Voice Of Your Body

Proper Stretching And Warm Up

Before reintroducing your body to high-intensity running, stretch yourself or do a proper warm-up. So, your body can become flexible and able to keep up with the stress which comes along with running. It is an important healing step for a pre-run.

Start Slow

Once you get back into running after an extended break due to an injury, try not to push yourself very hard. Go easy on yourself and start slow. You might feel mental pressure and compare your current performance with your former performance. But it is necessary to stay slow because “slow and steady wins the race”!

Set Realistic Goals After Returning

Bottom Line

To keep yourself motivated, set the standard bar low. You will feel more motivated and successful every time you accomplish your goals. This technique will gradually build your stamina and confidence back. In no time, you will be back in the game with high spirits.
