Sunday 2nd December - Stockport 10 reccie. Meet at the track for a prompt 10am start. All abilities welcome because we will be putting up 'resident' signs on the estate and also marking the mile markers. Will probably take about 2 hours.

Jonah - have you got any of that spray paint?

ES - I'll drop some off at the track this week for you.

Kwaka- Have you got anymore Information about your 10k around Poynton, route etc.

Anyone here had Plantar Fascitis?

I have a sore point at the back of my heel underneath the heel. This very rarely hurts whilst running but can be quite painful if I have sat down for a while or when getting up in the morning. The pain eases after a bit of movement. It is worst after a track session. I think I can feel a very slight lump.

It is probably a bruise or sore bone that I am not letting heal properly (no pun intended). However I am a bit concerned it could be PF as sometimes the pain spreads further along under the arch of the foot and I notice it most early in the morning after waking up.

If you have had PF, how did it start, what were initial symptoms?

I did do Famous Grouse, although I was still huddling in my car in the car-park at 10:30am - it cleared up just as it started though, but was REALLY wet underfoot, leading to slow times all round - but the usual really well organised/friendly atmosphere event

JMC - I get that heel thing now and again - it could be achilles/calf-related as well, so I always start with a bit of extra stretching for those. I had it recently where it definitely felt sore on the sole of my foot, so I rolled my arch over a hard object (golf ball is usually quoted, but I used one of theos mini-aerosol cans that you get car-lock de-icer in) for a few days and it went away - I also laid off what I thought had caused it in the first place - namely too much running on tarmac in lightweight neutral shoes, when I really need more cushioning/support

JMC--I haven't had it!

Good to see NI having a bimble at Burnage parkrun.  I ran Marple parkrun - really nice course - a bit muddy at the moment but I reckon it would be about 20-30s faster than Bramhall on a good day.

DTS - you were lucky at the Grouse - me and Stuart P got caught in a freezing sleet shower just coming off Bowstones.  I got home still freezing cold to find the kids bored and wanting to go for a hike at ... Lyme Park.  Back up there by noon by which time it was nice and sunny.

JMC - man up and start running off road.

RB - were you aware that you have a photo/name-check in the latest Fellrunner magazine?

26/11/2012 at 17:29

Thanks for the link SW. It is on my Xmas wish list.

26/11/2012 at 19:42

RB, I know what you mean about being cold, although I am in Oslo!  Man up yourself and start running in some proper cold weather!

27/11/2012 at 08:24

Cross country this Saturday BHB so there could be an easy win for you at Bramhall.

DTS - thanks yes, I saw that and mini-Bob too (although she actually managed to win as she points out).  I like the magazine but usually I'm just an armchair Fellrunner.

27/11/2012 at 11:39

Or BHB could sacrifice his personal ambitions for "easy wins" and support his fellow club members at the cross country in their attempts to secure "hard wins" in the V40 team event. Be there or be a soft git who is scared of running a hard race!

JMC - If he is still busy putting the slo in Oslo, there is Norway he'll be able to make it to the xc in Wythenshawe.

(apologies...)
27/11/2012 at 13:09

PPP - That's terrible, although I was wondering if the temperatures there are Oslo as he suggests they are...

27/11/2012 at 13:25

Can't put it off any longer - the spikes are definitely coming out this weekend so I'll see some of you at Wythenshawe (at least it's flat!)

JMC - I had a similar problem earlier this year - tightness / pain in the arch / heel area. It never got bad enough to seriously affect my running but I had the symptoms for a good while. Massage will help relieve the symptoms. It finally went away when I started doing most of my training in lightweight shoes and my theory is that the improved gait means the foot can flex properly on landing which stops tightness developing.

NI - 374 miles this month! I think you may manage 6 miles off road.
27/11/2012 at 14:59

If I had run 374 miles in a month I would struggle with another 6

I suspect my XC debut may not be this week end. I've been away a lot over the last two weeks, and will be having family round on that day for slightly premature birthday celebrations.    I do feel guilty about it, so if I can work a romp in the mud into the mix then I will do. 

Actually rather wet, cold and miserable in Oslo...I'd much prefer snow. 

27/11/2012 at 17:52

JMC - I have been having almost identical symptons to you and like you, affecting me after a run not during. I have had the same fear that it could be the start of PF but I did find both DTS's and NI's comments reassuring. Not quite sure whether a neutral shoe helps or hinders, but NI's view on flexing is logical and I'm also going to do some foot exercises.

27/11/2012 at 19:48

JMC - PF & I go back quite a way. In fact so long that I cannot remember the last time I ran without pain in my foot. Sometimes it's mild discomfort, other times it's downright nasty to the extent that it alters my running stride and leads to other overuse/compensatory niggles.

As NI mentioned, the choice of shoe can either aggravate or alleviate depending on your gait, weight and avg mileage. Hope yours clears up quickly if your self-diagnosis indeed proves tru but don't buy into all the complimentary therapy b*ll*cks like night splints, orthoses, frozen golf balls, etc, etc. Tried 'em all with zero success.

It will go when it goes..

JMC... ditto UB, 18 months of it, now it's gone completely, don't know why or how?
