FALL IS HERE!

Posted in Heel Pain, Plantar Fasciitis

Enjoy daylight after work for a few more weeks.

Daylight savings time ends November 2. You don’t have to get on that trainer or treadmill yet.  Here are some tips for exercising outdoors in the fall.
 
1. Wear reflective gear on moving body parts (shoes, socks, hands)
2. Wear a headlight with a rear flashing red light.
3. Avoid the roads and enjoy local trails and parks. 
4. Increase the intensity of your exercise and shorten the time. Many people see more desirable results when they add interval type workouts to their routine. (http://www.runnersworld.com/workouts/quick-workouts-in-just-20-minutes?cid=socTP_20141002_32652116)
5. Don’t be afraid of the dark. Exercising at night can provide a different perspective on your workout and refresh your interest.
Remember we are here for you if you have any foot or ankle pain.
