Have you been hurt while running?
Although many people take up running in order to improve their fitness, many people find that it’s also an effective relaxation tool that can help to relieve stress. While many rural locations have quieter areas in which to run, and urban areas generally have parks and heaths, many prefer to run in busier, more populated areas, particularly if they are running in the dusk or at night.
While it may seem safer to run in busier, well lit areas, unfortunately this isn’t always the case. Although you may be less at risk of an intended attack in a busy area, you could still be hurt or injured in an accident which was not your own fault.
If you choose to run in a town or urban area, for example, you may be running on pavements next to a significant amount of traffic. If a car hits you, you could suffer serious injuries. While wearing high-visibility running clothes may help you to avoid such an injury, there’s no guarantee that this will be enough to prevent you from suffering any injuries at all.
Due to safety issues, many people opt to run indoors on a treadmill. Although this may prevent you from suffering from some injuries, it’s important to ensure that the equipment is regularly serviced and maintained so that it’s working properly when you use it.
