Preventing injuries and staying healthy is extremely important if you want to make it through selection. This is especially true when it comes to your lower extremities. Most understand the importance of a proper warm up and cool down, but do you know if you’re wearing the proper shoe? Check out this informative article by the American Council on Exercises (ACE) and see if your running shoes might be hurting you.
Another great resource before buying your next pair of shoes is the “Shoe Finder” provided by Road Runner Sports. It asks important questions like; how much you are running, what type of surface are you running on, and how much do you weigh before recommending a choice of shoes.
