Running Tips

If you run or jog for exercise, you can reduce your risk for an overuse injury by following these suggestions from the American Academy of Family Physicians:

  • Don't boost your mileage by more than 10 percent a week.

  • Don't run more than 45 miles in a week.

  • Try to avoid slanted or uneven surfaces.

  • If you have pain, stop running. Rest for two to three days. If the pain continues for more than a week, talk to your doctor.

  • Alternate strenuous or hard workouts with easy workouts.

  • Change your running shoes every 500 miles.
