Carmen’s Tip – Shoes!

 In HCYHealthy

Good shoes are essential for your workout comfort and safety.  The first thing I look at when ankle, knee, hip, or foot pain occurs is the condition of my sneakers.  Replacing shoes as recommended can help prevent injury. Your workout shoes may look great on the top side, but the number of miles and the amount of impact you’ve put on the soles is the important factor.  Shoes for the avid runner are built to last approximately 350-500 miles or 6 months. I have an avid runner in my house and replacing running shoes frequently is expensive, but well worth it. If you are not a runner, but you are an avid exerciser, pay attention to your mid-sole and out-sole. Look for visible signs of wear and check for good shock absorption. Replace workout shoes yearly, at the very least, and make sure the type of shoe you purchase matches the exercise you choose. Your feet will thank you!
