I recently read this article about Finding a Sustainable Running Stride and it really hit home for me since I’ve injured myself a few times while training for different races and it’s pretty miserable to recover and rehab.
It also got me thinking that finding a sustainable WRITING stride is something I’m constantly trying to achieve. I’m wondering if some of the things I’ve learned about staying injury-free can be applied to my writing.
Being consistent, having a plan, and paying attention to how I feel (meaning knowing when to rest and when to push) have helped me in terms of running. I’m guessing all of those would help my writing too, so I’m going to make an effort to keep track of them.
Do you have any tips for achieving (or more accurately AVOIDING) either (or both)?
