Fitness Pro Warns of Running Dangers

Long-term wear and tear

There are several options to improve the security of your jogging routine

Long-term wear and tear

Choose a pair of running shoes that will provide stability and comfort, and dress in layers so that you won't get too hot or too cold. 

Short-term injury

Injuries can happen to runners of any experience level, even those who have just been at it for a short while.


When you go for a jog or a sprint, you're essentially upping the ante on the amount of vigorous exercise you're subjecting yourself to.

Overuse injuries

No runner, no matter how long they've been at it, is immune to the perils of trying to cram too much into too little time.


If running is something you like doing, you could try to fit it in as often as you can. 


You shouldn't go overboard because excess of anything is bad for you.

Muscle imbalances
