I did it again yesterday - tripped myself, that is! It does
not happen often, about once a year, but it is terribly
humilating every time.
My running motion is not biomechanically unsound, but I have
what has been described as a weak ankle, and my foot turns
inward as I move it forward. This results in the foot not
rarely scraping against the right leg, and - once a year -
in a quite spectacular fall.
However, the ankle is not really weak at all, it has the
same strength as the right one - so the weakness must be
in my brain. I know I have a habit of leading, or kicking
off stronger, with my right foot unless I make a conscious
effort of controlling it (by means of a kindergarten song...).
Has anyone battled this sort of problem, or trait? Any
drills to cure or unlearn it?
