Curtis was recently featured on I Run Flint’s Ask the Expert column answering the common question “How do I start running again after an injury or taking a break?” The simple and easy answer is to use interval training. As quoted from his response:
“The tip to get started again is quite simple: take it slow. One way is to start with interval training. Try running for a minute followed by a minute walk, and gradually over time move to two minutes running and one minute walking. After you can handle four minutes of running and one minute of walking start to wean yourself off the walk until you are running continuously.”
