I will do anything for running…

…but I won’t do that.

(get it, like that horrible Meatloaf song?)

What’s “that”?

Give up high heels, that is.

A new study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology that I read about on Runner’s World says regularly wearing heels can compromise the foot’s ability to work naturally.

(the study refers to heels five centimetres high…tee hee, five centimetres? I had to do a doubletake and make sure it wasn’t referring to inches — OK, maybe I’m a snob when it comes to high heels).

Sure, maybe it’s shortening my calf muscle, and could cause me Achilles tendon pain, etc., etc.

But. Not. Gonna. Do. It.
