Now that the weather is starting to get warmer and there’s more hours of daylight in the evening, you may be itching to get outside and run. But if you took a bit of a running break during the winter, don’t expect to be running at the same level as you did in the fall. Here are some tips to keep in mind as you head outside to take advantage of the nicer weather and ease back into running:
Make slow increases.
If you haven’t run consistently all winter, start your spring training with short, easy runs — no more than 3 or 4 miles at a time. Don’t run two days in a row. One of the easiest ways to get injured is to increase your mileage too soon, before you’ve established a good running base. Don’t bump up your mileage by more than 10 percent per week.
