Here are some tips to help get you started:
Warm up and cool down:
Make sure you stretch before and after your run. Stretches are an essential part of your running routine to avoid injuries.
Some important points to keep in mind:
· Never stretch a cold muscle
· Hold each stretch for a slow count of 30
· Repeat twice on each side
· Don’t overstretch—be comfortable
· Don’t bounce when stretching
Pick a road or trail you are familiar with:
starting out, the last thing you want to worry about is getting lost. Before
you lace up your
sneakers, do some research: ask friends where they like to run, use online running forums to find popular routes, and check to see if your park has designated trails. The more popular and visible the trail, the better.
Wear the appropriate footwear:
Adapt your shoes to your environment. A regular running sneaker works for the flat, predictable surface of a treadmill. But once you are outdoors, make sure the sneaker’s tread can handle the gravel, dirt roads, and slick trails. Runners should get a sneaker that supports the feet while having the appropriate sole to help maneuver and provide support over uneven surfaces.
Running outside is more taxing on your muscles, joints and bones, making you more prone to injuries like shin splints. Start off with shorter distances on flat roads or trails. As your endurance improves, gradually increase your mileage and hill work.
Maintain a constant pace:
Don’t feel compelled to push yourself to run at the same pace that you would on a treadmill. Start with moderate and comfortable pace that allows you to run safely, and gradually increase your speed over several weeks as your body allows.
you’ve been running on a treadmill for a while, transitioning to the outdoors
may take time. The mechanics of running on a stationary treadmill are different
than running outside on an uneven surface. When in doubt, you can always talk
to a chiropractor about how to improve your form and prevent/manage injuries.
Note: Running is a high-impact activity. If you’ve never run before, please consult a chiropractor/medical practitioner to ensure you won’t worsen any pre-existing conditions or cause injury to your joints.

Do you suffer from knee pain?

Spring cleaning is a great way to add a bit more activity into your day.
Here are a few tips to transform your chores into a fun way to get your body moving.
1. Put on some tunes that make you want to move
Pick some tunes that will help you pick up the pace as you clean and put a little pep in your step. This adds a cardiovascular element to your cleaning that’s good for your heart.
2. Tighten those abs
Just thinking about your abs and keeping them flexed while you work can help build and tone abdominal muscles. It also helps to keep your back supported and prevents you from slouching.
3. Extend and lengthen typical movements
Make every movement as large as possible (up-down, left-right or in circles).
4. Add stairs
Take the stairs to carry laundry and supplies between floors (if you have the ability to). If you don’t have stairs, or have limited mobility, try to find little ways to add more steps or movement to your regular cleaning routine.
5. Be thorough
Don’t forget to mop, dust, or sweep below or behind furniture for your annual spring clean. Adding this extra movement helps you get to the corners you might skim over the rest of the year.
Whether you’re cleaning a full-length mirror or scrubbing a shower wall, bathtub, or toilet, squat while you do so to help work your legs and glutes. With any body movement, if you focus on how you do it with proper form, not only are you getting a workout, you’re better-supporting your back.
7. Mop with the top
When you mop with your hand on top of the mop handle, it helps keep your back straight, and tones the arm muscles as you clean. Make sure you use a mop that suits your height to make sure you’re not over-extending your arms, neck, and shoulders.
8. Lunge while vacuuming
Adding a few lunges in with each movement of the vacuum handle adds some much-needed lower-body strength training to your routine. Keep your toes pointed straight ahead, and don’t bend your knees beyond a 90 degree angle.
9. Lunge while weeding
That’s right, lunging isn’t just for indoors: when doing outdoor chores and gardening, you can get your lunges in while pulling weeds too.
10. Prune from the top down
Pruning helps strengthen the forearms. It also involves reaching for top branches by getting on your toes, just like a calf raise.
11. Use your legs, not your back
Time for more low-back supporting squats. As you pour mulch or fertilizer on your lawn and garden, use your legs, not your back.
12. Let your weed-eater machine do the work.
Hold your abs tight and focus on your form as you lean forward to nip those weeds in the bud.
13. Bend from the knees
Whenever you need to lift something, never lean over; always bend from your knees. This includes cleaning toilets: squat or kneel on one knee instead. Not only is this smart for your back, it works your lower body.
That’s a lot for one person in one day, but if you have family members or friends in your household, dividing those tasks and challenging each other can help you enjoy a cleaner home, a better workout, and some bonding time with those you spend time with the most.
Not all those motions or activities are for everyone. For ability-friendly modifications, you can always consult your chiropractor for guidance.
