Leigh - good luck at VLM you should get round if you are at 20 miles already . Went to a physio who said my tendon is strained but then so is the tendons under the foot, my arch has dropped, my Achilles is strained, my calf is tight and so are my hamstrings all on the same leg - any one want to swap a leg? Managed 5 miles Friday after physio and it feels a little better today - using a hand held massage machine about 4 times a day - it's race day tomorrow at Wilmslow so I'll see how it goes
A week or so ago i started getting a pain on the front of the ankle where it joins the foot, it was something i could run off after 5-10 minutes but over time it kept on niggling throughout the run. On sunday i managed a 24 miler in a little discomfort but today its really bad.
It is a swollen area just to the front - i can move my foot around, pull the toes up etc and can walk reasonably ok it just when i run - its like the tongue of the shoe is really hard and digging into my leg (thats the best way to describe it). I have put ibuprofen gel on it and Rock Tape to see if i can get any swelling down - it seems really localised though to one specific area.
any ideas anyone? Please? I have a half on sunday and VLM coming up
done my first 20 miler now in them - no blisters, no rubbing, no pains, even my toenails are happier - weight was ok after a 2 hour+ run - hope you enjoy your pair Saintbarca - i am going to order another pair as a backup
