Staying Healthy

The best way to handle injuries is to avoid them. By taking preventive action, you can improve your body’s overall strength and balance so that you can run as far and fast as you want—and experience the true joy of running.

Staying Healthy TIPS

Stay Safe in the Heat

Racing in warm, humid weather means paying extra attention to the conditions and how your body responds to them. NYRR Medical Director Stuart Weiss, MD, offers tips to help you have a great race.

Cold-Weather Running Tips

Sub-freezing temperatures require some changes of plan for your regular runs and for racing. Following are some helpful tips for staying safe if it’s cold, damp, and/or windy out. With the right clothing and adequate precautions, even single-digit weather can be comfortable for runners.

Listening to the Body

Whether you have aches and pains after increased mileage or fatigue from an overly busy schedule, your body might be trying to tell you something. Listening to warning signs can help you avoid injuries.

Cooling Down

After a run, walk for a few minutes to let your body cool down. Cool water—or better yet, an ice bath—can help muscles recover and prevent common injuries.

Core & Strength Training

Coaches and health experts agree that full-body conditioning is vital for runners, both to prevent injuries and to maximize performance. Whether you do just a few strength exercises or a full weight-training regimen, you’ll benefit from a balanced approach.
