Learn to Run Program

We are looking forward to helping you discover the joy of running.

Interested learning to run? Click on the tabs below and download the walk / run program by clicking here.

Still have questions ? Call us at 905 873 7677 or email postmaster@rossphysio.com to arrange a walking or running analyses and a personalized running program from one of our Physiotherapists!

Gather your running shoes and comfortable clothing. Click here for a video describing useful items or refer to the list below:

  1. Shirts - choose something that will not hold moisure like synthetic fabrics like Polyester. Cotton tends to hold moisture and is therefore less comfortable.
  2. Shorts - as per shirt material. Again to to avoid cotton underwear. Most running shorts come with a liner so some choose to go without.
  3. Socks - generally it is wise to avoid thick socks as they make it difficult to keep the foot stable in the shoe. Once again cottons water retaining quality makes this material undesirable in a sock. Polyester and acrylic are recommended.
  4. Calf compression sleeves - those with varicose veins or a predisposition to them may find that a compression sleeve for their calf preserves their comfort and prevents deterioration of their varicosities.
  5. Headwear - a cap with a peak or headband / light weight toque for cooler weather.
  6. Eyewear - sunglasses for late afternoon or dusk.
  7. Shoes - we will be doing a special session on shoes. Beginners need to be certain that the outsole is free from wear, the midsole shows no horizontal lines (indicating an incomplete return to full expansion) and the fabric upper sitting centered over the heel.
  8. Fanny pack to hold cell phone, ID and cab fare!
  9. Cell phone or a timer to guide your walk / run intervals. There are many apps out there, some of them at no charge. We find RunKeeper well suited to this program Click here for more information.

* A guideline to choose your clothes (dress as if the weather is cooler if windy):

Adapted from Linda Kirk's "learn to run" handbook. Thank you to Linda and the Georgetown Runners for their contributions to running in Georgetown.

> 21 deg C   Lightweight / light - coloured singlet and shorts
> 10 and < 20 deg C   T shirt / Shorts
> 0 < 10 deg C   Long sleeve shirt / shorts or tights
> - 12 < 0 deg C   2 upper body layers and one lower body layer

 

Go for casual walks. Choose a time and distance that you are sure are within your capabilities then increase the duration by 10% after each successful ( non-painful) outing until you reach 45 minutes every other day for 1 week

Check the weather and dress accordingly

Check the weather and the heat index to dress and hydrate accordingly.

Drinking fluids routinely every day is an important habit for any athlete.

Adults should consume 2 – 3 liters each day (scale this down to fit your needs if you are on the smaller side (a north American adult I 177 lbs).

Consuming a sports drink during and after a shorter run like 2 - to 5 km will help replace salts and sugars that are lost during your run.

Lemonade colored urine suggests good hydration. Dark urine, feeling unusually fatigued or leg cramps mean you are not adequately hydrated. A good reference is the Registered Dietitians of Canada. Click Here

Remember that it is possible to drink too much water (Hyponatremia) . The symptoms are similar to heat exhaustion.

Adjust fluid intake and vigilance for heat exhaustion by consulting the heat index prior to activity.
