To run, if done every day or too often it can trigger injury to the body. As mentioned from the research results, running should be done for 5-10 minutes in moderate speed (about 10 km per hour) every day, and this will have a positive impact on the body.

Benefits include reducing the risk of heart attack or stroke, reducing the risk of cancer, including neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. That does not include a fit body, a good mood and improved sleep quality.

Mentioned that if done excessively each day will have an effect increase the risk of injury due to overuse. It happens because of doing too much physical activity, too fast, and not letting the body adapt.

Overuse injury can also occur due to improper running shoes or excessive use of certain muscles.

To avoid the negative impact of running, always use proper running shoes and change shoes periodically. Do not run with a long distance at once.

Experts also suggest to combine running with other exercises, such as cycling, swimming, or weight training. No less important is always warming up before running. Running a few minutes every day is healthy. But, according to the actual study we do not have to run every day.

Elite running athletes also try to avoid injury by planning combined exercises. For example if today is already running, tomorrow they will swim or other sports, so the muscles that work hard when we run will rest when we do another sport.
