I have only being running for a month, and have been told I have mild PF.

Can I still keep running, or do I have to stop. I am training to complete my first marathon FLM07, I so do not want to stop training. Any advice welcome.

As someone who tried to run through it a week after it started, I'd advise you to rest. That was April 2004 and it's not cleared up properly yet, although I am running again now.

It's probably wise to take a couple of weeks off now, freeze a pop bottle of water and roll it under your foot several times a day, and get some stretching advice from a physio. Or try here

Nip it in the bud early on and you should be OK. Good luck, Debbie

Oh. poo - I screwed that second link up! That'll teach me to rush!
Try again...

OK, maybe the dots are upsetting it but at least the second link works now.

Sorry for the mess.
