Stay in Running Shape While Injured

Try to focus on endurance and how fast you are running rather than deliberately thinking about the technical running movements.

You’re a runner who loves to run every day and push yourself in your training. Then you get injured, and your doctor tells you that you can’t run for the next few weeks while you recover. As an athlete or fitness enthusiast, this can feel devastating. And, studies have shown that your fitness levels can actually decrease drastically after just a couple of weeks without fitness training.

How are you supposed to stay in shape during that injury recovery period so that, when your body heals, you can maintain the level of fitness you had during your running training?
