Health Tip: Run Safely
And lower your chances of injury

(HealthDay News) -- Even running or jogging can lead to injury unless you take the time to prepare.

The American Council on Exercise offers these suggestions:

  • Always warm up before and cool down after your run. Gently stretch your muscles to help prevent soreness.
  • Make sure you're not overdoing it. Speaking out loud continuously for 30 seconds should be challenging, but not too difficult.
  • When your muscles are too tired and sore, back down on intensity, duration and frequency of your runs.
  • Alternate running days with strength-training days.
  • Don't increase running distance by more than 10 percent per week.
  • Only run if you enjoy it.
