Running enthusiasts should cross-train. It may help you avoid injuries by strengthening the muscles that sustain your runs. Moreover, it may also assist you in training while you recover if you do get a running injury.
Unfortunately, physical activity may bring on acute injuries as well as chronic pain. This is especially true because I’ve seen exercise have a negative impact on my body over the years.

In preparation for Houston’s long, hot summer, many of us have put away our sweaters, long trousers, and coats. While adjusting your clothes for the season, why not give your feet a rest as well? Your feet may thank you for ditching your high-heels over the next few months.
Heel pain is a common foot problem described as pain or discomfort experienced anywhere in the rear of the foot. It is estimated that every year around two million Americans suffer from heel pain, with athletes and seniors being the usual victims.

Neglect to any heel pain symptom can lead to bigger problems such as reduced mobility and capacity to enjoy life.
