Try F8 walk program

Procedure to do “8” shaped walking exercise:

Practice this in the morning, evening or in empty stomach, in the open or in a room in the north-south direction.  Draw a parallel line from east to west or west to east in the north side and leave ten feet gap and  draw 8 shape line; now practice “8” shaped walking.  Walk North to south and South to North clockwise and anticlockwise fifteen minutes each.Practice “8” shaped walking first and then you may do some simple yogic exercise and breathing exercise.During this walk we will necessarily concentrate in walking in the 8 shape line. Possibility of chatting with friends in person or in mobile like in normal walking is avoided.  Proper and normal breathing is possible.In our hand palm and leg palm all reflex points of our entire internal organs are located.(See the leg palm picture) Due to the pressure in palm, at the time of  walking ( we should walk in bare foot without shoes/chapel ) all our internal organs are activated and we get relief from concerned diseases.

Hello....... It's better to use sports shoes... Running puts pressure on sole and shoes prevent uneven distribution of force... But if you are not professional runner, you can manage with ordinary shoes... But don't run in bare foot... If can also use treadmill ... .....
