    Top tips for safe jogging practices

    How much do you know about safe jogging practices? Plenty of people head out jogging every day. Some have been jogging for many years, while others are only just starting. In any event, it pays to be prepared so you can have a great time without worrying about the potential for suffering an injury.

    For example, take the time to find and buy some proper running shoes. Ordinary trainers may not fit the bill, as they’re simply not designed to help you jog safely. Go to a proper shop where the assistants are experienced in providing advice on which shoes to get.

    Take a phone with you

    It always pays to have a phone with you in case something happens. You don’t set off jogging expecting anything to go wrong, but a twisted ankle can happen more easily than you might think. It might also lead you to get stuck on your own somewhere where you cannot easily ask for help. Make sure you don’t go too far off the beaten track either – a mobile phone is no good if you don’t have a signal! Oh, and don’t forget to tell someone where you are going and when you should be back.

    It’s also worth finding a nice route to jog that is accessible to everyone. Don’t stray onto private property, for example. Sometimes you are allowed to use rights of way, and these should be in good condition to use.

    Be alert for traffic

    You can jog all kinds of routes, but staying closer to civilisation has a lot going for it. However, you should always make sure you stay alert for traffic and other people. As far as safe jogging practices go, this is probably one of the most important. Always cross roads safely and be on the lookout for cars and other vehicles.

    Of course, even if you take all these measures, you can never be certain of the actions other people might take. If someone is speeding and hits you as you are crossing a road, or something else happens to cause you injury, might you have a chance to seek compensation as a result?
