*Instead of wearing closed shoes, he wears “Vibram five fingers with toes cut off or Luna Sandals”. “I find closed shoes uncomfortable, I can’t run with my natural form,” he expressed.
*Technique matters more than whether you are running on a soft or hard surface. The trick is to run softly, he said.
*”Running correctly and regularly strengthens legs and is good for the knees,” Milind added.
*If you are a beginner or restarting after having been sick, injured or overweight, the fitness enthusiast advised that one should start at a very slow speed and cover “short, comfortable distances”. “Regularity is the key to improvement,” he wrote.
*Regarding his diet, the Paurashpur actor mentioned, “I don’t need any special diet if I am running 5-6km a day. I might need to eat more if I am running 50-60km a day.” Here’s the diet he follows.
*Milind also revealed that he does not use sunscreen when he goes out to run. “After running, if the sun has been really hot I use a little curd on my face and wash it off with water when it dries. Skin feels good, tan looks amazing.”
