Hi. I was at IM Mallorca this weekend and firstly have to say thanks for the support on the run. Pirates are a good group of supporters and racers.
I'm truly gobsmacked at the DQ mentioned above, given that most of the field hastily opted for wetsuits. How on earth can anyone in a tri suit/swimming cozzie + calf guards be doing anything that's more advantageous than wearing a wetsuit? I could understand if it was non wetsuit, but not once it was wetsuit. I was majorly impressed at those that still went without (through no choice or whatever). I was quietly glad that they did allow them when I was out there on that big swim loop & I didn't feel at all over warm, just right.
Outside, around the bottom of the outside of the ankle bone. Pod said that was a compensatory type injury, ie being a dumbass trying to run through PF for months (although he's way too polite to say that). But I was. I'm sure a few sessions and then rest and rehab will do it. As you say you can't endlessly shell out. I've found swimming to be brilliant for my foot. It feels a lot loser and relaxed after. The rest of me on the other hand...
Yep I did and ran on until I got a very sudden sharp pain which forced a very sudden stop! That seemed to be a bit like a sprain type injury in that I had no balance and struggled to weight bear. That seems to have cleared after a couple of weeks and balance back to normal. Just got the bloomin PF heel pain to get rid of. Had a very painful physio session on it today. I'm extremely ticklish which made me not sure whether I wanted to laugh or cry.
I'm current resting up, cycling, swimming, stretchinb etc to get rid of pretty bad PF which I made much worse by ignoring, plus damaged the side of my foot. one of the things I've found brilliant for helping with foot mobility and stopping that awful thing of barely being able to walk in the morning is a night splint. You can get them on Amazon for about £15. It's like a plastic boot that keeps your foot from tightening up overnight. It does take a bit of getting used to and faff, but once you are used to it, it makes so much difference. I still have the heel pain to get rid of, but it's nice being able to stand up in the morning and not hobble!
