Running Burnout
Running Burnout.

Let’s talk about the B-word. No…not that one. Running Burnout.

Burnout. We all go through burnout, whether it’s a running burnout, life, or something else. For instance, towards the end of living in New Jersey, I was feeling stale. Doing the same things every day. I didn’t realize it, but I was probably burned out with running too.

Then I got injured with running. Then the pandemic hit, and everything changed. Then I moved across the country. Needless to say, 2021 is not really where I thought I would be.

It’s different in 2020 due to the lack of major marathons, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see fall exercisers out and about (hopefully social distancing).

How to Increase Running Mileage and Avoid Injury

Increasing running mileage and avoiding injury is tough. Like many people during the pandemic, I’ve had extra time. I have the time to run more mileage. It’s been easier to add a mile here and a mile there, and suddenly you think: How did I end up with so many miles?

One of the most important things you can do to increase running mileage and avoiding injury is ease running slowly. Running too much, too soon, will result in an injury. It’s challenging to cross-train or strength train with so many gyms closed. If you’re increasing weekly running mileage, it’s essential to do so slowly. Nothing in running or fitness comes overnight. In fact, not much in life does.
