Injuries… everyone hates them: they cause pain, they cause you to stop doing the thing you love, and they will slow down your progress a lot. So how about some hints to prevent these injuries when running, aight?!

Slowly increase your training schedule in both size and intensity, especially for beginners. The heart and longs adjust a lot faster than muscles, tendons and bones.

  • As a beginner, you may have some “beginner pains”. Take it a little easy on the next few training, you will hardly lose any physical condition after an easy week anyway.
  • Make sure you warm up and cool down properly. Especially at an intensive training or cold weather.
  • Learn to listen to your body. Don’t just listen, act accordingly!
  • Make sure you have the right running technique.
  • Don’t always run on a road. A soft underground is better for your knees.
  • Use the right running shoes.
  • Be patient when making a new training schedule. Don’t add too many things, not only to prevent injuries, but also to get better results from your trainings.
