Description: Making a smart return to running following injury requires a gradual approach to training that some runners 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
