Join us today (Friday 23 Nov) at 1pm for a webchat with physio Matt Todman from Six Physio
Thanks for the reply Matt, will you be doing a cooking only webchat next week?
next week, bread baking and achilles issues!
That's perfect. I love bread AND have achilles problems!
following my long run on sunday ive a pain in my left heel that has suddenly appeared without any kind of lead-up. Monday morning i could hardly put my foot on the floor and although ice has helped its still to sore to run on. The pain is on the sole towards the 'front' of the heel. It feels like a pin point pain which is quite sharp?
....if you want a diagnosis, it sounds alot like plantar fasciitis.
The cause is the key to getting you back running pain free, rather than just feeling better from run to run.
Have a good look at the support your shoes give (or not!), was this a big increase in speed, distance or terrain? Any knee, hiop or back pain?

nothing different to the norm - my running shoes are about 3mths old and have been fine to date. i guessed it was PF related but always asumed that was something that built up over time rather than just springing up over night.
I know it's a week late! But I wondered if I could ask you something else in connection to my first question on knees as I've got myself into a bit of a mess. Also. good at cakes, rubbish at bread making, so a session on that would be good as well.
Anyway, back to knees. Have been for 2 four miles runs to start building it up again. left a day in between to rest. Yesterday the last mile felt very sore, so stopped . By the evening, there was bruising, like 2 finger marks on the outside of my knee! Pretty worried now, as it feels sore and I have a race on Sunday.
Help me OB1!
Trying to master the art of the muffin this week, going to give the beetroot and chocolate a go as recommended by the baking strand.
Just read your advise after a spinning session. Oh well, rest from now.
Thank you for that, I was having a bit of a panic, feeling more relieved. Small steps, gotcha.
