Like a fluid filled 'puffy' thing
Well, as an update. After the Fernwood 5k yesterday it stayed dwelled up all day but went down again over night last night. Done the North Muskham 5k this morning and it's swollen up again.
The only thing I can think of that I'm doing slightly differently is shortening my pace so that I'm landing more on my midfoot, rather than going further forward and risking heel striking. I started to try this after reading the advantages on this forum. Could it just be a transitional thing that will settle down once my feet 'learn' to land differently? I must say that while I've been running like this I'm landing a lot softer and seem to have more power in my legs, so it would be a shame if it's also causing me problems. I'm not running at all tomorrow and will try to give it a miss on Tuesday, too, which will mean my next running day will be Thursday.
The problem is I also cycle a lot and go spinning twice a week, so it's difficult to know if it's actually running that's the problem
Thank you so much for your thoughts and advice
