Point Your Toes Where You Want to Go

Standard

Next time you’re out running or walking, notice where your toes are pointing.  There’s a good chance they aren’t going forward.  When our feet point out when we run or walk, it puts undue stress the medial ligaments and tendons in our ankles as well as our medial meniscus tendon in our knees.  This is a big cause of runner’s knee (had it), iliotibial band syndrome (had it), and hip injuries (check).

Here’s an easy fix!  Look down at your feet every once in a while and see if they are pointing in the direction you want your body to move!  If they aren’t, get those puppies straightened out and run on!
