So, tonight I went up to the UCSF RunSafe
clinic for a running evaluation. This involved a strength and flexibility assessment by a physical therapist, an evaluation of my feet and shoes by a podiatrist, a chat with a nutritionist, and an analysis of video of my running gait while running on a treadmill.
I'll probably do a longer post once they've sent me the full report on their analysis. I was, however, absurdly pleased to be informed by a podiatrist that I have perfect feet for running. Because, really, I've never had a perfect anything for anything, athletics-wise.
Also, my gluteus maximus is apparently "legit".
