In spite of its physiological benefits the long distance running -however in a little measure- may be a danger. Important, that before a serious strain consult your doctor. Enter a race or an exhausting training only well-prepared. Do not enter a race or training in ill, injured or feverish condition, after vomit or diarrhoea. If you feel any unusual sign on yourself during running, slow down, stop, if it is needed ask for help. The above does not depend on the length of the distance, the meaning of the serious strain is individual. Be responsible for yourself, run sensibly!
