Self-Protection for Outdoor Exercisers

Excerpted from The Anytime, Anywhere Exercise Book

It's horrible to think that you have to anticipate protecting yourself against people who want to do you harm while you're exercising outdoors, but it's reality. Better to think out your strategies ahead of time and never need them than to avoid the subject and be unprepared when you're in danger.

John Martin, president and co-founder of Combat Arts Institute in Palatine, Illinois, cautions you to stay aware of your surroundings--not just traffic and terrain, but also the people. Be wary of people behaving strangely or showing facial expressions or mannerisms that aren't right--clenched fist, sweating while standing still, or furtive glances, for example. Stay clear of any person who makes you feel uncomfortable or fearful, even if there's no logical reason for your feeling.

Think before you stop to answer questions or offer help. Usually someone who asks the time or directions is another well-meaning person enjoying the trail or park--but someone who means you harm will often use this ruse to make you stop and get you off guard. Assess before answering, and answer without stopping.

If your gut feeling is that something isn't right, trust it. If anything makes you queasy or uneasy, don't stop. Your brain is capable of receiving signals that something is wrong before you can analyze the reason.
