Check Your Health: Spring into running with the right footwear (KUTV)

(KUTV) — It's time to spring into running with the right footwear, and Danny Moody, an exercise therapist with the Utah Valley Hospital, is here to help.

Here's what you need to know:

How should running shoes fit?

  • .5 inch in the toe
  • Don’t over tighten the laces
  • Provide foot-based stability

How can you tell if a running shoe is worn out?

  • Cushion compression
  • Tread wear
  • Comfort

How can I start spring running?

  • Ease into it – don’t expect to be where you were last fall
  • Motivate yourself so you are consistent
  • Find a new fun run
  • Run with a group
  • Set new goals

For more information on proper running, attend the Intermountain Runner’s Clinic on Wednesday, April 12, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the American Fork Specialty Clinic. RSVP to Utahcounty.rsvp@imail.org.
