Okay, when you're running, probably one of the most annoying things you can suffer from is cramp! Most runners have probably experienced cramp of some sort during their life time and know what I'm referring to!

Today's tip is an easy way to avoid suffering! Cramp and dehydration go hand in hand, so today's tip is to keep hydrated while running, especially on long runs where fatigue will take its toll! So take some water when you go out running, if you don't want to carry a water bottle while you run, then drop a bottle off half way round your route, then drink it when you reach half way, then pick it up again upon completion on your way home! Other options include hydro packs and other similar products which I personally find very effective during endurance runs! By keeping hydrated you will fight off cramp for a much longer time, but, if you do happen to get cramp, my top tip to get rid of it, is to stretch the muscle in question out, this will help relieve the cramp!
