Earlier this summer, I made the conscious decision to take a couple of months off from running and to get back into it at the end of August. But even though I had a plan, I still had all the mind drama about starting over again, which means it was no surprise that I didn’t start when I intended to.
I have now officially started again, and I’ve curated an in-depth process for getting back into a running routine that I’m sharing with you today. We all stew in shitty thoughts about how our fitness levels won’t be the same after a break, or that running is just going to suck, but these tips I’m outlining here are going to help you get some traction in your life, without all the mind drama taking up your time and energy.
Join me this week to learn about my personal three-step process for getting back into a running routine after a break. Getting into a terrible headspace that keeps you stuck doesn’t have to be part and parcel of starting an exercise routine again, and I hope this process helps you go forth in a way that serves you.
