Never increase your running distance by more than 10% per week.

Be aware of training intensity and terrain that may put extra stress on your body

Always warm up (using dynamic stretches) and cool down including (static stretches) using appropriate clothing for the weather conditions.

Listen to you body, hydrate properly, take appropriate rest days and don’t run through pain that is more than 2/10 VAS on the pain scale.

Check that your hip muscles are strong and maintain this by using single leg squats keeping the ankle, knee and hip aligned.

If you are running on roads, beware of running on a camber as this will alter the load distribution through your hip, knee and ankle joints.

Seek professional advice if you are struggling from injury.

Remember, prevention is always better than cure
