Listen to your body.
If you are training for say a marathon or half marathon where the volume of training will require you to run consistently for maybe five days a week you are bound to feel tired either due to overtraining or general fatigue.
There are certain runners who feel that if they miss even a single training session then their fitness will suffer.
Wearing ill fitting shoes or running when feeling unwell due to a heavy cold or such like can result in muscle injury.
Simply over doing it and not listening to your body can result in injuries.
Check your heartrate regularly and if it's abnormally high think of some other form of excercise or even rest.
The secret to successfull running is to remain injury free and with a little sense and listening to your body injury's are not inevitable
YOU JUST HAVE TO TRAIN NOT STRAIN
