Don’t try 和 do too much too soon, especially if you haven’t exercised for a while. Maybe start with a gentle 20-30 minute jog around your local park or the racecourse but make sure you have good running shoes that support your arch 和 ankles 和 have cushioning on the heel. Some running shops will analyse your running style for free 和 recommend certain types of trainers.
