“During a 10-mile run, the feet make 15,000 strikes, at a force of three to four times the body's weight.”As a runner you should not ignore your feet! Most of the time we take them for granted until they hurt... There is a long list of foot injuries that can slow us down and make our run miserable.
"Each foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 112 ligaments, and a network of tendons, nerves, and blood vessels."It is truly a wondrous device meant to propel us!
I massage my feet everyday. I apply scented oil (currently using Body Shop’s lavender oil) to the whole foot and deeply rub in over a couple of minutes.
