That floating feeling that comes with being well-conditioned is what every runner strives for. Miles feel more effortless (and a hell of a lot more enjoyable). But if you’re new to running or coming back from a hiatus, the feeling you’re more inclined to experience is runner’s knee, Achilles tendinitis, or shin splints. To get to that wild-mustang-running-free feeling, you need to do a few things: Start off steady, consistent, and modest (adding too much mileage in the early stages is a sure-fire way to get hurt). Make time for cross-training so you can strengthen the small stabilizing muscles around your joints to help ward off aches and pains. And lastly, get some cushioned running shoes. Try the ZoomX Invincible Run, Nike’s latest release.
