Doing too much, too soon, too fast

One of the common pitfalls for the newbie runner is to start from doing nothing to relatively heavy training in a short period of time. If you're not giving your body lots of time to build up your running, you might be in for a stress fracture.

Going with "too much, too soon, too fast" is not getting enough rest. Not just sleep but rest for your bones and joints too. When you start running, run for half as many days as you don't.

"Teaching" Sleep

During WWII, the U.S. military realized that if fighter pilots didn't get sleep, their poor decisions had dire consequences. Their mishaps included errors that resulted in their being shot down--or shooting down guys on their own side.

Helping combat pilots get good rest fast became a priority. So the military brought in naval ensign Bud Winter to develop and test a scientifically designed method of "teaching" sleep. After just six weeks of practice, 96 percent of pilots could fall asleep within 120 seconds.

  • Increased flexibility. Most researchers agree that 10 to 20 seconds of stretching is enough to increase flexibility.
  • Better posture. Stretching can help encourage proper spinal alignment and reduce musculoskeletal pain, which will improve your posture.
