Bad Running Habits

I read this article on Runner’s World, which outlines 10 Bad Runner Habits that probably most of us are guilty of in at least some capacity.

You should read the full article, but if you’re a little lazy, here are the habits they mention…

  1. Running too much too soon
  2. Refueling badly
  3. Forgoing SPF
  4. Ignoring your core
  5. Starting a race too fast
  6. Being your own doctor
  7. Skipping stretching
  8. Not getting enough sleep
  9. You never rest
  10. Fixing it all

I’m terrible with starting races too fast. I always let the adrenaline get to me and end up heading out at least a minute per mile too fast. Usually I catch myself before I get into too much trouble.

Where I run, I don’t have to worry too much about sunscreen, but it’s a good tip. Take care of your skin!
