Running Rules

The world's famous sprinter, author and Philosopher Dr. George A. Sheehan says.. Everyone can be an athlete. The difference is that some people are trends and some are not. Fitness is a fun. If there is no fun then there is no fitness, don't let the fun overwhelm the body and mind, listen to the voice of the body. He ran but without hurting himself. Like every sport, there are rules for running, follow them, even a single wrong step will harm the body.


1. Warm-up before running, so that you can get full energy for running. Brisk walk or light jogging can be beneficial. The body becomes active with a walk of 10-15 minutes.


2. Small steps are good for running. Initially run on a park track. Run on a flat place for a few days.


3. Make small goals. For example, run three to five minutes on the first day. Continue this rule for a week. Next week 7 minutes then 10 minutes, gradually increasing the running time.

US coach and four-time Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier Budd Coates says.. First-time runners usually make the mistake of running in kilometres. Whereas in the initial phase, think on the minute not the kilometer. Make small goals like five minutes - ten minutes, run it for at least a week. Do not increase it more than 10% in a week.


4. Keep your mouth closed while running, breathe through your nose. With the mouth open, the throat will dry up and fatigue will be felt quickly. Never drink water while running, do not take any soft or energy drinks. You can drink water shortly before running.

6. Run to a clean place. In the beginning it is not good to run on the road, there is a risk of imbalance in it, do not run with earphones on. Do not run even in crowded places.


7. While running, the upper part of the body should remain in the correct position. If the posture is not correct then pain can occur in the arms, shoulders, neck or back. While running, keep the hands till the waist. Note that the hands are making an angle of 90. Keep the body straight, do not lean forward and run. The head should be up, the back should be straight and the shoulders should not be sloping.

By running in the same place, the position of the body is also the same. The muscles are also pressured from the same angle .
