Running Tips: Prevent Injury

April 24, 2020

Running Tip #1

With all gyms closed and limited equipment, many have started running, while others are transitioning from running on the treadmill to outside. We are now running more outside in the trails and sidewalks, which is very different than running outside. To prevent injury and pains, we need to keep in mind that we should progress slowly and work towards a good tolerance. Take this tip to improve your running ability and performance! Start with one minute on (running) one minute off (walking). Keep your cadence in mind, which means the number of steps a minute. The gold standard is 180 steps a minute. No worries you don’t have to count your steps there’s Metronome apps that you can download. You can also check out Spotify and Pandora, they have songs based on 180 beats a minute. Remember the goal is 180 steps a minute.
