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.
Throughout my decade of running, I’ve had several running injuries. Due to form, I am more injury-prone. It’s taken me years to figure that out but now that I have…I’m a lot more cautious and smarter with running. Rest days save seasons, and it’s a mentality I use often to stay away from a running injury. You won’t lose fitness in a day or week, but you will lose fitness if you are forced to take an extended break due to injury.
