Staying Active during Covid-19
With Fitness clubs closed to flatten Covid-19 my routine changed and found myself going back to old habits of RnR. "Physical activity improves health and well-being. It reduces stress, strengthens the heart and lungs, increases energy levels, helps you maintain and achieve healthy body weight and improves your outlook on life."

When the weather improved it motivated me to focus on my fitness and well-being again. My first work-out was a struggle, which was okay. The investment in a personal trainer (consistency & proper form) provided the tools and knowledge for my fitness success.
First How to Find a Running Shoe That Fits
Conventional wisdom holds that your running shoes should be about a size bigger than your dress or casual size. There’s a grain of truth to that—increased blood flow and swelling during and after exercise do make your feet expand, so your running shoes tend to be larger. However, because of sizing variations in all types of shoes, there are too many variables to know exactly how the numbers will align, says Kevin Vincent, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor at the University of Florida and director of the UF Running Medicine Clinic." https://www.runnersworld.com/training/a28172274/running-shoe-size/
Warm-up 10 minutes of stretching or cardio (avoids injury)
1 set of 14-16 reps (Lunges, Push-Ups, Squats) focus on proper form.
Cool-down 10 minutes walking and stretching.
Always be kind to yourself. Starting is always the hardest part of achieving one's goals.
