Choose the Right Shoes and Insoles
Proper footwear helps you run better and safer! Browse through the internet and do a bit of research before you buy footwear that’s best for your distance, running terrain and your budget.
Diversify Your Run
Whether it’s in a park, gym’s treadmill or through your neighbourhood, the joys of running are truly limitless. You can choose to run on different terrains to help reduce the pressure on your joints and bones.
Never underestimate the power of rest days in your fitness routine. Giving your feet the chance to recuperate between runs helps promote muscle growth and reduce the chance of injury related to overexertion.
