Should I Run? A Decision-Making Infographic

Has the nicer weather kickstarted your desire to get outside and get running? Maybe you’ve been injured and off for a bit and wondering “where should I start?” Or, perhaps you’ve been running a little here and there, and thinking you should race the Sporting Life 10k next weekend with your friends from work.

Is it a good idea to just pick up and go? How many times per week is good, and how much might increase your chance of injury? While it’s always important to listen to your body, we’ve put together an infographic to help give you some helpful tips around this rather confusing question.

Give it a read, share with your friends, and don’t forget your friendly neighbourhood running pros are always here to help :)
