5 Safety Rules For Street Jogging by chinavs9ja(m): 7:41am On Oct 22, 2019
The incident that occurred Sunday regarding the death of a man jogging around Ogba in Lagos, has gotten the attention of Nigerians including HotSpots. Well, there is nothing bad to jog. In fact, jogging is good for our health and fitness. Yet, there are some safety rules that we must consider for safety sake, of course! Most jogging or running safety rules are basically common-sense rules. But you see so many runners both female and male – who violate this common-sense practices every day We live in a dangerous world. High-speed traffic, questionable motives, and lapses of awareness may make a reasonably safe activity, dangerous! “The life the runner saves… could be their own!” However, as important, nobody can tell “The liability you avoid could save your home, sense of well-being, years dealing with hospital bills, pain, the courts and or deep regrets.”Please follow these few simple steps in order to be sure your running moment is clearly safe for you and for others you may accidentally encounter: If you must run or jog alone, a treadmill at home or at a health club is a much safer option than street jogging.

Jog, run or walk with a companion
Avoid running alone in unpopulated, unfamiliar, poorly lighted areas, and stay away from heavily wooded trails, surrounded by heavy brush or secluded areas. Do not jog or run at night or after dark.

Do Not Jog At Night, If You Must Try To Be Visible
It is advisable not to jog at night. If you must jog in the dark then be visible! – Wear light-coloured

clothing with reflectors and lighting.

Keep your mind on the event
Avoid talking on the phone, texting or watching a movie while your feet are in motion.

Do Not wear headsets
This is an important rule for safe jogging. Car horns, cyclists, footsteps of someone behind you, all fade away when wearing headsets. Tune in to the sound of the environment around you instead.

Do not wear jewellery
You don’t need to wear jewellery. But, do carry your identification or write your name, phone number and blood type on the inside sole of your running shoe. Vary your route and pattern of jogging if you run regularly.

Finally, beware of stopped cars waiting to make a right turn. Wait for them to turn or run behind them.
