Description: Making a smart return to running following injury requires a gradual approach to training that some athletes might find frustrating. But would you rather make pain-free progress toward returning to running or jump back quickly and possibly experience a setback as a result of re-injury?
This workship will address topics that include:
- Common running injuries
- Factors that impact your readiness to return to running
- How to know if you are ready to start running
- What to take include in your return to running training plan
- Common causes of setbacks when returning to running
