Top Running Mistakes

We all make mistakes when learning something new or training for something big. Running comes with many challenges and unseen technicalities that beginner athletes have to face time and again. A good way to deal with this is to have good knowledge about those technicalities. Some of them are as follows:

Overworking Muscles

When you work your muscles during training and performing in the match, you are putting them in a state of regeneration. This essentially means they are going under wear and tear to make room for bigger, stronger muscles. For that, you need to make sure you are doing a calculated amount of training without over-consuming your muscles which may result in over exhaustion and even in injury that can disturb your performance to a big extent.

Not Warming Up Enough

When you warm up, you are preparing your body for the actual running exercise. Ignoring this part might land you into problems such as sprains and torsions. Warming up helps your body get more flexible and agile for the actual session, so when you move your body a certain way, your body gets acclimated well without getting hurt in the process. It is, therefore, important to form a habit of doing a warm up of at least 5 minutes before starting running on a track.

Wearing the Wrong Shoes

It is also important to wear the right shoes that fit you and are comfortable to wear. That way, you will be able to run in an optimal posture, and there will be a minimum risk of injury such as a sprained ankle. It is also important to position your feet right in your shoes, make sure the laces are tied appropriately and your feet don't get hurt when you wear them for a long enough time.

These are some common mistakes people make while running. While there are a lot of technicalities that come in the way of running, a beginner runner should at least learn the basics when it comes to training for the actual event. Even small details, such as tying your shoes properly, are important for performing right.
