Make sure you pick up a copy of this month’s ‘Men’s Health’ magazine and check out Profeet Run Technician Emma’s advice for runners:

Emma writes:

Getting into running was the best thing you ever did for your fitness, but 10 years later, your feet have taken a PB-threatening pounding.

 

Poorly fitting trainers place the foot under tension, which in turn makes the calf muscles and achilles tendon overwork to compensate for the lack of stability, leading to painful tears.

 

To stay on track, Emma suggests a professional fitting, leaving a thumb’s width between the tip of your big toe and the end of your shoe.

 

To ease aches, place the centre of your foot on a step, then press forward. Keep the calf extended with your toes at a 45-degree angle to your shin. Hold for 30 seconds.
