Fixing Your Feet

Blogathon post 26/30

I have quite a collection of running books and refer to all of them regularly. They are all good and I decided over time I will do a quick mention of them.

First up is one of my favorites and certainly one of the best books I have.

Fixing Your Feet by John Vonhof



This is a must have for any runner and marathon and ultra runners will find it very useful. It is devided in 5 parts and covers everything there is to cover about your feet and their care.

Part One - Foot Basics

Part Two - Footwear Basics

Part Three - Prevention

Part Four - Treatments

Part Five - Sources and Resources

A brilliant book for any athlete of any sport that abuses the feet.

"One thing is for sure: when one's feet hurt...
it definitely gets one's attention."

I've heard that's a good book. In the last 4 months I get blisters on the left foot of my arch. For a longer run I've started taping it but I don't know what's really causing it.
