Hi Guys, after spending months trapped inside thanks to the pandemic I think it is time I started doing a bit more cardio and thought running would be a good way of doing this.
I also have aims of doing a charity run at some point, but it is probably a bit too early to plan this as I don't know how my body will react to running just yet!
I am a little nervous to get back inside a gym at the moment so was planning to do my running in a park not far away from where I live.
But as I live with AS and RA I am a bit wary of doing myself any further damage and as I am a total beginner I don't want to accidentally pick up any bad habits when I start that could be detrimental to my conditions or induce flare ups!
I was wondering if anybody had any tips for getting started running with AS? Whether that is with technique, warming up / down or any suggestions on what to wear when I do it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Hope you are all keeping well!
