A massage therapist's plea to the enthusiastic runner!
Dear future running enthusiast!
We know! You're feeling really motivated and itching to get started... You used to train upwards of 5 times a week so of course you can still do that! We understand you used to be able to run 5 - 10 kilometres off the back of no training. So jumping straight back into that distance makes sense!! You want to get fit 'LIKE YESTERDAY,' so training every day to keep up the enthusiasm and get into a routine quickly is the only option!!
Yet here's the reality.!! You're not as young as you used to be!!! At some point you worked up to that training load - IT TOOK TIME!!! Getting straight back into it (like you did 10 years ago!) is a sure way to end up on the massage table!
So, can we please offer some suggestions!!!
Good luck from the Just Knead It Team!!!
