From a Lance Armstrong tweet this morning:

Just had an MRI done on my plantar fasciitis. Sick of this! Most frustrating sports injury I’ve ever dealt with..

No surprise. Take a look at his form. Brutal.
Wonder why Nike coach Alberto Salazar hasn’t gotten on him to lose that heel strike and unlock that knee? As Salazar puts it:

There has to be one best way of running. It’s got to be like a law of physics. And if you deviate too much from that–the way I did in my career–it can be a big handicap.

You show me someone with bad form, and I’ll show you someone who’s going to have a lot of injuries and a short career.
