Went to the VivoBarefoot in London, like I normally do when I am there. They were a bit slow, so I jumped on the pressure pad, and what did we see? No toes!
Next is a one legged balance – there are some of my toes!
Vivo says this means my feet are broken. 🙂 I don’t disagree — my feet still get sore and tired after 40 or 50 miles of tough trail, even in shoes, while other folks I know do not have that problem. They gave me some exercises to do, so I’ll give them a whirl.
They also had me run on the treadmill, and said I run from the hip flexors, and barely use my hamstrings to lift… It looks a bit like a pendulum. I hope to get a copy of that video and if so I’ll update this post… They slapped the bottom of my feet while I was running, and it really makes you lift the foot off quickly. The before and after videos were quite distinct!
