Return to Running

Return to Running

This summer, I decide to return to running. After being a distance runner in college (for fun), I hadn't run for like ten years. That's because I transitioned into being a lifter and loved it! But due to COV-ID, my workout options dwindled and I also wanted to improve my cardiovascular endurance for hiking purposes. So I embarked on a 12-week journey to return to running.

In this 13-minute video, I share more about the 12-week beginner running program I wrote and completed the summer of 2020, the 3 lessons I learned from the process, and my plans for the future.

The main theme is this: to prevent injury as much as possible, spread out your running training over a longer duration. I'm happy and proud to report that over 12-weeks, I had zero pain or injury set backs. That's very, very rare to hear when a newbie starts a running program. Most new runners develop tendonitis/tendinopathy issues all over...which then delays their progress.

If you're interested in running, below is the 12-week running program I wrote. As a Doctor of Physical therapy, I want you to enjoy running instead of hurting yourself. Hope you love it! If you complete it, comment below and let me know how it went. 

God is Love, Steph
