Stew Smith, together with Dr. Seth Donelson (DPT), provides a comprehensive guide on how to get back to running while recovering from pain or injury. The key to prevention is a gradual exercise progression and ensuring that you are eating and resting enough. Another way to do is by applying the 10% rule where you do not increase your running and/or weight-lifting volume, intensity, or frequency by more than 10% per week. Alternatively, you can do other workouts like low-impact cardio if the pain persists. This will prevent you from losing momentum while still training.
