RE: LYDIARD OR DANIELS?
Kim are you ok? You Kiwis got quite the shaker. Only one fatality so far?
Sorry Wetcoast been away a few days. To start off:
Exercise 1 Place marbles in a semi circle pick them up with your toes and place them in a cup. Place the cup out in front, then to one side then the other.
Exerice 2 Standing toe curls start standing on both feet progress to single leg stance.
Exercise 3 This exercise strengthens primarily the medial arch but the whole foot gets it. In standing keeping your forefoot and heel on ground try to "shorten your foot." Contract the inside arch muscle try to make the big toe touch the heel is the best way I can describe it it is not a gross lifting of the arch.
Exercise 4 Stand in runners pose ( no that pose:0)and try to maintain your balance for 5 seconds x 10 - 30 reps. If unable to hold the pose of foot flat start by learning to balance on one foot.
Hope these help , they are no means all inclusive but they are functional strengthening and will get you started.
Happy holidays and the best running yet to come in the coming year!
