I developed PR in my left foot a month or so ago. I bought some of the Scholl Orthaheels from Boots (the regular ones, not sport ones) are wearing these every day in my work shoes and in my football boots has worked wonders and the pain does not seem to crop up.
However, when putting the Orthaheels in my Asics GT-2170s for running, the shoes become uncomfortable. If I take the Orthaheels out of the Asics, my heel aches like hell after the run. What should I do?! At a bit of a loss.
Could it be that the GT-2170s are already ‘too cushioned/supported’ and therefore putting the Orthaheels in them isn’t really an option? Would I be better off getting a pair of running shoes that are less cushioned/supported so that I can use my Orthaheels in them?
I played 11 a side football at the weekend and since playing, my heels have been very sore (more so in my left heel than right). I’ve looked this up online and it has all the hallmarks of plantar facilitis. I’ve purchased some sports orthotics from Boots (Orthoheel) to put in my football boots when playing and also some normal orthotics of the same brand to put in my everyday shoes.
My running shoes are Asics GT 2170s so are already moderately cushioned – do I need to put the sports orthotics in my running shoes when running or will this provide too much cushioning?
Looking for a bit of advice. I've entered for the London Marathon in 2013 but as you know, will not find out until October-ish whether I'm in or not.
I will definitely be doing the Reading half-marathon which is in early April 2013 but would also like to do some 10ks in the later part of this year. I'm just a bit confused with how my training regime should look bearing in mind I could potentially be covering 3 different distances! I have achieved a 39 minute 10k in the past in a race so I would like to train to this sort of time for a 10k distance, but would also like to build myself up so that I can finish a half-marathon in a good time (around 1hr 30).
I have a Garmin Forerunner 305 and have found the training schedules that you can download direct to your watch in the Training section of this website very useful. However, which should I be following bearing in mind what I've said above?
