Bad Habits Runners Tend to Have


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/14/2013 -- Just like anyone else, runners can develop bad habits too. But not to worry, there are some easy ways to break those habits.

1. Too much running, too soon. It can be exciting to jump in full speed after an injury. But by following the rule of only increasing miles by 10 percent each wee, runners can avoid re-injury.

2. Sun Burn. Short amounts of sun exposure are okay, but for longer runs, don’t forget the sunscreen!

3. Don’t ignore the core. A study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research showed that those who did core exercises four times a week ran a 5K 30 seconds faster than those that did not.

4. Starting too fast. Pace in a race is important. Not starting to fast or too slow.

5. Leave it up to a doctor. Self-awareness is very common for runners, but playing doctor with injuries it not always a good thing.

6. Get some sleep. Too few hours of sleep can lead to slower recovery times, poor immune health and lack of focus. Everyone needs different amount of sleep- so keeping a log of sleep vs. performance is a good idea.
