We all know the im­por­tance of keep­ing your feet in good nick, but what’s the best way to go about it? Matthew Fitz­patrick, a con­sul­tant po­di­a­trist from the Col­lege of Po­di­a­try, gave us his top tips for keep­ing your feet safe and com­fort­able… 1Know

your feet – be aware of when they are sore and don’t just bear the pain. 2Don’t

change train­ers just be­fore a big run, as feet need to get ac­cus­tomed to them. 3Hy­giene

is key – wash­ing your feet and air­ing your train­ers will help pro­tect feet. 4Al­ways

stretch prop­erly and keep an eye on your leg health. 5If

you have any wor­ries, go and see a po­di­a­trist and get your feet checked out.
