Thanks for all your replies, it has eased thank god after being so painful. I did just that over last few days foam rolled and stretched calfs and rolled my feet with my massage ball and trusty frozen bottle of water!! Off for a conservative run, I've had to walk in work shoes today and it is fine so hopefully be ok.
Thank you, I've googled both of those, it's possible but fortunately I have no pain my joints/ toes or tendons it's just jn the fleshy part of my foot. My mum suggested it might be a vurraca or corn coming (yuck) it's possible!!
Hi, I currently run about 40 miles a week, whilst warming up for a 10km race yesterday I felt a Sharp pain in the ball of my foot I thought I had something in my shoe but didn't. I did the race (ran a PB ) and it was hurting at the start but then stopped or I forgot it about in the heat of the race! Afterwards it is agony and feels like there is a piece of glass in my foot. I have no lumps or pain to my toes or anywhere else just this pain in the ball of my foot. Can anyone help or had this before as a running injury. Thank you.
I'm 5ft 3" and a size 10 I have an entry level orca suit in a size small which I love and fits like a glove. Although when I first tried to get it on I put it on backwards and then I was sweating so much I couldn't get it to go on at all!!!
So the next day I tried again however this time armed with a 1 quid pair of primark wooly gloves and hey presto I was able to pull it on properly without damaging it. This makes sure that you can get the crotch right up and the torso pulled up so it doesn't pinch around the chest and neck.
Also the tip from above is great once it is on if you lean over and grab the excess neoprene and give it a good pull (with gloves on).
They do loosen off abit when they have been worn in the open water a few times. Also abit of body glide around the ankles and wrists helps it on.
Hope this helps. Open water swimming is so awesome so bare with the suit and take the plunge!!!
Definatley go for start fitness! They were in Eldon Square but I think they may have to the monument. I have actually moved to Yorkshire but always travel back to see my folks in Newcastle or go to start fitness shop in Durham. They do gait analysis for free and staff are very very helpfull, I always spend loads of money. Hope this is helpful. I won't buy from anywhere else.
