4 MISTAKES AND HOW TO FIX THEM
1. RUNNING TOO MUCH, TOO SOON: Coming back from an injury? Now's the time to take things slowly to stay healthy. Follow the standard rule of upping your mileage only 10 percent each week.
2. REFUELING BADLY: After hard runs, grab a high carb/protien snack within 20-30 mins after, then a meal with carbs and protien to rebuild muscle within 1-1.5 hrs.
3. FORGOING SPF: Up to 20 minutes of sun exposure a day can be good for you-but you need sunscreens on runs longer than that.
4. FIXING IT ALL: There's plenty of advice on how to become a better runner, but try to focus on what's manageable. Remember: You likely started running to feel better-not to become stressed.
HAPPY AND HEALTHY RUNNING !
