Are you new to running? Or have you taken a recent break from running due to an injury, winter, or being sick? Well you’re not alone!
I have not run outside since October when I first became sick with that nasty stomach flu/virus. Then came winter with the blisteringly cold temperatures and short days and who wants to run in that?
In December I decided to sign up for the Rock n Sole quarter marathon (6.55 miles) before the price went up and because I was determined to get back into running shape after being sick. When I registered I knew training might be tough but signing up for the race was key to keeping me motivated.
So I’d like you to join me! Do you have a race that you’ve signed up for and need some extra motivation every once in a while? Or are you new to running and would like some unsolicited advice from someone who enjoys running and has found certain things work for him/her? Then you can look no further!
I will continue to share my thoughts about returning to running and any tips that I think might be useful. I hope you’ll join me!
