The Do’s and Don’ts of Train­ing Out­doors

Amazing Wellness - - FIT & HEALTHY -

Dif­fer­ent en­vi­ron­ments pose dif­fer­ent haz­ards, from wild an­i­mals in forests to traf­fic and pol­lu­tion in cities. Things to keep in mind in­clude:

DO:

Get out­side in day­light, ide­ally in the morn­ing. Seek out na­ture. In a con­crete jun­gle, look for parks and tree-lined streets. Keep your eyes and (prefer­ably bud-free) ears open and en­joy the en­vi­ron­ment. In de­serted ar­eas, con­sider go­ing with a buddy.

DON’T:

Get ab­sorbed in mu­sic and be­come obliv­i­ous to your sur­round­ings. For­get to stretch. Af­ter a long walk or bike ride, stretch your mus­cles while they’re still warm. Over do it. If you’re not ac­cus­tomed to long hikes or run­ning stairs, you can eas­ily push your body too hard, in­creas­ing risk of in­jury.
