Manage episode 324894947 series 2488239
When we wanted to find some guidance for advising our runners on the best way to return to running after Covid, we turned to the American College of Cardiology Return to Sport after Covid Guidelines, co-authored by our guest, Dr. Jonathan Kim, an Atlanta-base sports cardiologist. While certainly vaccinations have changed the Covid landscape, vaccinated runners continue to struggle with returning to running after symptomatic Covid. Dr. Kim's clear and encouraging advice will provide guidance to anyone who is eager or struggling to return to running after Covid (or any kind of virus).
