Do you make these mistakes when you run?
Whether you’re new to running or you’ve been lacing up your sneakers for years, you’ve probably received thousands of tips, suggestions, and pieces of advice, some good, some not so good.
Trouble is, not everyone you speak to is an expert and quite frankly some people have absolutely no idea what they’re talking about, and if you did follow their advice, you’d probably end up hurt.
So today we’re going to have a little fun as we reveal some of the worst tips we’ve ever heard, and explain what you should be doing instead.
Let’s jump right in.
Take one look at the list above and you’ll notice a common theme throughout, almost all of these pieces of “advice” come from non-runners, which tells you all you need to know about following their words of wisdom. The truth is if you have questions about running, whether it’s to do with nutrition, training, or something entirely different, you should speak to people who know what they’re talking about and preferably who’ve also been through it.
That way you can make sure you’re getting good, sound advice from the right type of people.
Above all else, you know you’re body, so if in doubt, trust your gut and go with what feels right to you.
