Milind Soman, who recovered from COVID-19 in April, has actively been sharing tips on working on core strength. In his latest Instagram post, the actor talks about questions pertaining to running and how he is gearing up for his first 10,000 km run after recovering from COVID-19. Posting pictures of himself, he captioned the post: "My first 10k post COVID! 62 mins, comfortable, max heart rate during the run 142. I have been running 5-6km every day since I got my negative report on 5th April. To answer some questions about running that people have asked here."

The model-turned-actor revealed that the first step is that he always picks comfortable footwear- "To run, I wear either vibram five fingers with toes cut off, or Luna sandals. I find closed shoes uncomfortable, I can't run with my natural form," he wrote. His second go-to tip was - "Surface does not matter, technique matters. Run softly."

OG Milind Soman doing what he does best. The actor added in his post: "Running correctly and regularly strengthens legs and is good for the knees." For those "starting/restarting/been sick/been injured/overweight," Milind's handy tip - "Start with very slow speed and short comfortable distances. Regularity is the key to improvement."

I might need to eat more if I am running 50-60km a day." He signed off with this tip, "I don't use sunscreen. 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."
