Happy National Running Day!
Here are some of our top tips on how to keep your feet fit!
1. Choose a shoe that’s right for your activity. “The rule of thumb is that if you do an activity three or more times a week, you need a sports specific shoe,” says Carol Frey, MD, assistant clinical professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). This means that if you’re running, for example, you should be looking at running shoes, not crosstrainers, toning shoes or any gear that’s specifically made for walking, hiking or other specific activity.
