It is important to take care of one’s body … we must prevent injury
Run on soft surfaces whenever possible (grass, gravel, woodchips, etc)
Make sure you have new shoes that are not worn down (replace your track trainers!)
STRETCH frequently and ice when needed
Take proper precautions when exercising during warm weather
Go out for runs early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the hottest part of the day
Drink plenty of fluids (water before runs/water and sports drinks after runs)
Dress appropriately – protect skin from sun exposure but be aware of overheating
Always run w/someone whenever possible (or let someone know where you are going)
