Running can emotionally calm you down and keep you weight in check at the same time. But make sure that you choose a soft ground for running and remember that you can take it up at any age. Stretch your limits a little at a time and you will be surprised to look back to see just how far you have come.
While running be careful with your posture because wrong posture can lead to terrible knee pain. Buy good running shoes and gear. Keep yourself hydrated. Don’t starve yourself. Just eat a well balanced meal. Strengthen your hips and thighs. One of the most common causes of knee pain is weakness of the thighs and hips which absorbs impact.
Check your shoes if you are getting blisters. Good socks can make a lot of difference. Before putting your socks apply petroleum jelly to the hot spots. Tell yourself that you can do it. Exercisers who repeated that they can do it actually did it in life.
