How running can avoid injuries
The running posture should be reasonable. The upper body should be straight and lean forward slightly, with your shoulders relaxed, your elbows flexed naturally, and your arms are swinging back and forth on both sides of your body. During the running process, the feet have full elasticity to run on the ground. The stride does not need to be significant, but the stride frequency and stride must be uniform. Pay attention to the body’s center of gravity is stable; do not have massive fluctuations.
2. Adjust your breathing
Breath problems during running are important. Breathing must have a certain rhythm. When you use the nose and mouth to breathe at the same time, the mouth does not be opened too much. You can roll up the tongue to extend the time of air in the mouth and reduce the irritation of the cold air to the respiratory tract. Every breath should pay attention to exhale as much gas from the lung as possible to increase the effective ventilation.
For a runner, there are many methods for speed training: on the track and field, repeating various short distance runs,doing speed games; running downhill quickly; participating in competitions, etc. Speed training is possible for everyone, and it has a greater effect on the elderly because it maintains the gait while maintaining the good biomechanical structure of the human body.The two will gradually disappear with age. Many adults who have not run, think that they are just adapting to jogging at a speed of 10 minutes per mile day after day, regardless of the intensity and speed of the run. This is incorrect.
4. Warm-up before starting
Before starting to run, warm-up, move muscles ,and ligaments through some simple stretching movements and let the body enter into a state of motion, which can avoid muscle injury or ligament strain during running.
