24/08/2011 Today started off a little bit different with the film crew from Behind The News coming to do some filming for their up coming feature on Childrens feet. In the staring role was little Emily May-Dobson, age 9 and our very own Senior Podiatrist Anna Morgan who ran through a consult for the camera's.
We'd like to thank the team at the Burside Village's "The Athletes Foot" for lending us some shoes for the shoot, and the lovely deb for rushing off to get them!
07/08/2011 After the success of last years run, we look forward to another day of our Podiatry antics at the 2011 City to Bay fun run on the 18th of September. With just over a month to go "Superfoot" has begun his training and shares with us a few tips on preparing for the day.
- Start your training early. This will give your body more time to prepare for the distance.
- Buy and test your running shoes in advance. After all, 12km is a long run in the wrong shoes.
- Trial your blister preparations in advance and work to prevent them where possible.
- Dont over do it. Train slowly and dont push your self too far over your own limit or you may end up with an overuse injury such as Achilles tendinitis.
