Stop Running in Flip Flops

Do you like to run? Do you like to run in flip-flops? PLEASE STOP.
Flip flops are throwing off the biomechanic systems of your body.
When you wear flip flops running your toes have to curl to grip the front of the flip flop each time you take a step. To do that the muscles on the back of your leg have to contract. This is going to fatigue the back of your leg very quickly. This fatigue of the muscles is going to cause chronically tight muscles and can lead to secondary conditions such as plantar fascistic, shin splints, and torn muscles.
Please wear a proper running shoe. And if you run on roads, check out this article about what to watch out for when running on paved roads.
