So what's a runner girl to do? Tighten your butt, seriously! "Doing exercises like lunges and squats isn't just for aesthetic reasons, it can really help protect you from a knee injury," Dr. Lopez says. In addition, Mitchell K. Freedman, DO, director of physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia and associate professor at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, recommends stretching in the morning, especially if you've taken up a new cardio class or workout. This will help prevent plantar fasciitis and shin splints.
