5 Questions Runners Should Ask Themselves During Every Run

Stay focused during your run by following these five tips.

Even if running is second nature to you and you've logged hundreds—or even thousands—of miles on the roads and trails, you might be making a critical mistake that could be slowing you down or even increasing your risk of injury.

What is this crucial error? It's running mindlessly. Simply put, not paying enough attention to what's going in your body, your mind and your surroundings. Running mindlessly makes you more likely to get crushed by a pace that's too hard, or settle for one that's too easy; expend more energy than you need to; or tire out sooner than you should.
