If you would like to help spare yourself an injury while doing any kind of sport, buy yourself and few different types of comfortable sneakers that coincide with the type of sport or training you are doing. Rotate your sneakers daily. Researchers of a 22-week study found that recreational runners who regularly rotated between pairs (most used completely different brands or models) were 39% less likely to suffer a running-related injury than those who run in the same shoes every time. Most of the participants who experienced leg or low-back pain that sidelined them from running for a at least a day ran in just one kind of shoe.
Training in the same shoe everyday will enhance any deficiets by working all the same muscles the same way, while rotating shoes allows for use of all the differently activated muscles.
I also like people to rotate on low-impact days to do some "barefoot" training to help improve balance and toe strength.

The #1 Reason to Work Out Today
Exercise boosts your mood instantly. It’s not easy to make time to work out every day. Gym sessions cut into your work time, family time, snooze time, and downtime. But here’s some fitness news that will make you smile. A new study in the Journal of Sport & Exercise Psychology found that as little as 15 minutes of physical activity increases levels of feelings like enthusiasm, pride, happiness, and excitement. The study tracked the daily activities of 190 college students. They kept a journal logging the amount and level of exercise they got and their overall emotional states. The more physically active people reported greater levels of pleasant feelings, compared to their less-active counterparts, reported the Penn State University researchers. In fact, the participants had higher levels of these feelings on days when they are more physically active than usual.
Many people lose motivation to keep exercising because they don’t see results—weight loss, better muscle tone, and greater strength—instantly. But gaining short-term rewards—like boosts in mood—may keep you coming back until you reach your long-term goals
Although the study didn’t assess how exercise works to lift spirits, the researchers suspect changes in levels of brain chemicals during and after physical activity may be involved. Don’t worry: You don’t have to be a marathon runner to get these feel-good benefits. For a quick boost of happiness, go for a quick walk around your office building during lunch, challenge your kids to a snowball fight in the backyard, or try a 15 min workout.
