As we age, staying physically active becomes increasingly important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Running, in particular, is an excellent way to improve vascular health, strengthen muscles, and boost your mood. However, we understand that age may bring its challenges, and some extra care is needed.

Running not only influences your physical health but also has a profound impact on your emotional well-being. The freedom of running can be a liberating and empowering experience, but it must be done with care. A bad running form can cause severe strain and aches, ultimately leading to injury or under-performance.

Here are some essential tips to ensure you can enjoy the benefits of running safely:

  1. Warm-up and cool down: Always start your run with a gentle warm-up to loosen your muscles and increase blood flow. Similarly, finish your run with a cool-down to gradually lower your heart rate and prevent post-exercise dizziness.
  2. Choose the right footwear: Properly fitted running shoes with adequate support are crucial to prevent injuries. Our expert podiatrist can assess your feet and recommend the best shoes for your individual needs.
  3. Listen to your body: Pay attention to any pain or discomfort during or after your run. It’s essential to rest if you experience persistent pain, as pushing through could lead to further injury.
