      Hey Peg, good question 🙂 Even if not instructed to do so, it’s always a good idea to warm-up properly before a run and to cool-down as much as you need to afterward!

      Hi Lydia, I am so sorry to hear that. I cannot provide medical advice, but I know that some hospitals offer online doctors and appointments so maybe that is an option that you could look into.

    I have been trying the interval running. I bruised my heal from overuse, trying to do it daily. Would you suggest every other day to run. I do spinning also. I would like to strengthen everything. I am 56 and love to exercise. What I’ve been doing without running is increasing my speed, is that better.

      Make sure you allow your body time to recover so you don’t injure yourself. Switching between running and cross training is definitely a good idea. Maybe incorporate strength training too, so you’re building strength as you’re building endurance, and taking a few days a week to focus on strength training would give your body that time away from running but still getting a good workout in.
