Hi all, I’ve noticed that I have foot splay just on the right hand side whilst running. Is this a problem or just a natural quirk?
Anyone else experience this?

This is actually the ideal; your feet should splay to absorb impact as they strike the ground (ideally with a mid-foot strike)
Folk who run in typical running shoes usually don't benefit from this foot splay, as their shoes keep their feet squeezed together. However, there are programs and products out there to help bring back this natural foot movement: https://www.nwfootankle.com/
