Just trying out my runscribe on my vibram for the first time, fun stuff!
My right foot is more “duck foot’ed” than my left. It’s pretty obvious if i’m walking / running casually without attempt to correct it. It also manifest on the shoes’ wear pattern (right shoes outside heel wear faster), and right side of my long pants over the inside of the heel would wear as it sometimes rub my left foot. Left leg & foot looks pretty normal.
When I noticed it and tried to correct for it, I noticed that my left leg and right leg and foot are shaped differently. Left foot arch is higher (even both feet are quite flat in wider scheme of things), and if I have to point my right foot straight forward when I stand or walk, I feel like it’s only archive-able if I turn the whole right leg inward, point the right knee slightly in. Now I don’t know if this is result of result of bad walk/run forms over years, or the left v.s. right were born with some differences.
So I was curious to see what insights will runscribe give me. From the first run, on the symmetry score, efficiency and shock are symmetric while motion is high imbalance. Specifically, left foot has high pronation and high velocity (-19.7 degree and 782 degree/s) while right foot has low pronation and avg velocity (-9 degree and 481 degree/s)
Quite surprised by this result. From what I read duck foot is more associated with over pronation so I would have thought my right foot will pronate more… What’s wrong with my leg/feet!? Time to visit some doctors?
I’m going to try different shoes to see if what difference would they make. The runScribe data is interesting in the sense that, in my experience when I run / train more, my left angle would have some minor pain - maybe my left foot doesn’t pronate enough to absorb shock? I’m still very interested in finding out more about my right foot situation, can the duck feet be corrected, if yes how…
