Here let me summarize for runners who want to get back into running:
• Follow a training plan – getting back into running-runners often get stuck in a rut or get too excited and run too much too soon and end up burned out and injured. Following a plan will keep you accountable and motivated without demanding too much of your body at the start.
• Take rest days – Rest days are important to allow your body to repair and rebuild from hard training days. Take at least one rest day a week for physical and mental recovery.
• Set goals – Running goals will help you stay motivated on those cold mornings or long days when you just want to curl up in bed.
• Track your progress –
• Go slow – When you’re getting back into running, take it easy on your pace and just focus on building your base miles (slow, relaxed pace miles at a steady effort level). You’ll want to build your endurance gradually before you add intensity to your running workouts.
First, set short term goals. Take it one week at a time. Set a measurable goal for yourself, for example to run three times per week or to run 10 miles total each week. Don’t overwhelm yourself by committing to run a half marathon or setting a goal that is unrealistic for yourself at that moment. I know, you could do it before, you perhaps did it last year. But this time it is different.
In the beginning: You do not need to include fancy running workouts such as tempo runs, hill repeats, or strides. Simply focus on just running and listening to your body. Get a feel of how the joints the muscles how everything reacts whilst you run, after your run.God wants us to have confidence in life! Not boastful, arrogant pride but an assured knowledge of who we are in Him! Our self-worth should be seen through the eyes of God, our creator. When you need a boost of self-esteem, there is no better place to turn to than the Bible!
Hebrews 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
