While running looks much of a simple exercise there are a few pointers you need to remember just to avoid any injuries during the process.
• If you are a beginner make sure you slowly get to it instead of starting a running routine from the first day. Start with brisk walk and then jogging and eventually building your time for running.
• Avoid eating a heavy meal before you plan to run.
• Drink fluids before and also carry a bottle with you while running to sip on when exhausted. Since running makes one sweat make sure you go heavy with the fluids at all times of the day.
• Buy a sturdy pair of shoe in the right size to avoid any strains and injuries. This is the only place where you want to invest in if you plan to take up running.
• Always consult your doctor before including the simplest of routines in your lifestyle.
