Ben and I spent a useful hour this afternoon with John from Fulham Podiatry on the recommendation of our coach, Faye.

And I broke my foot in the Marathon des Sables (lovely picture above), so was eager to get it checked out as it’s not quite fixed.
John put us on a running machine to analyse a gait. I was irritated to be told that Ben had a much better running style. Ben was irritated to hear that, with some coaching, I’ll be able to run much (even?!) faster…
