Q: What’s the best way to ease into running?
Amy Marsh answers
A: Whether you’re starting to run for the first time, returning to the sport after a long break or coming off an injury, the best way to begin running is with a walk/run routine.
Before starting any exercise program, though, be sure to get checked out by your doctor to ensure you’re in good health (and fully healed). The next step would be to get comfortable shoes. Spending a little extra time and money on the best running shoes for your needs will help stave off injury in the long “run.”
