Warming Up

Because running can wear out the joints in your legs, hips, and lower back, you want to ensure that you properly warm up before every run. Walk for a few minutes first or do some stretches before you pound the pavement. We can recommend some stretches for you to do.

You should also consider varying your exercise regimen with other types of workouts such as swimming, dancing or cycling.

Post-run Icing

While the last thing you may want to do is ice your joints after being out in wicked weather, doing so can reduce discomfort and pain. We can review with you how to properly ice an injured area and for how long.

Whether you’re jogging around the neighborhood or running a longer distance, also make sure you stay hydrated. Even though it’s cold outside, you’ll still be breaking a sweat and will need to replenish lost fluids.
