JJ, I hope MrsJJ is handling things well, it must be tough watching her struggle and not be able to 'fix it'. You need more gentle shambles and then the unfit will become fit.
It seems to cover the bottom of the heel, front, sides and back. After a long run it seems to move further up the heel on all sides as well as the bottm. The last medical suggestion I had was that the fat on the bottom of my heel may have flattened after 40+ years of running and is not providing any shock absorbtion, but heel inserts don't seem to make much of a difference. It doesn't seem to be getting any worse and again seems to be very slowly improving or I am just getting use to it.
I still cannot get pics to work, this site really sucks.
ceal, Thanks for the exercises. I may have given you the wrong impression. My achilles and calves are in good shape, both strong and uninjured. The base of my heels starts to burn when I run and then it continues after my run is over. It is minor, just annoying. If I don't run for a day it goes away. I am a little stiff first thing in the morning but that doesn't last more than ten minutes and seems to be my whole body. Running seems to be the only thing that brings it on. How did you get into singing? Is this something you have gone back to or is it new?
TS, What do you think will need to be done to get you back to running, just therapy?
NZC, It seems that your feeling off has been going on a long time, are you just tired or sick or both? It may be time for a blood test??
Columba, Very impressed with your consistency which is really important in preparing for a half or full. To avoid the 10 mile wall I would suggest that you decide on the right pace and stick to it. What is the right pace, your LTT. All the best with it, you have the training so this should be a very positive experience.
Yesterday was a 10k easy today was the same. I had intended intervals but it is just too hot, 27c.
ceal, I should receive my new HRM by the end of the week, thanks for the link. Both of my ATs are strong and pain free but I still get achy heels. It does limit my mileage but I can manage 30+ miles a week with no problem. I am experimenting with some insoles that I wear when not running. It is early days yet so no change so far but they do feel good when I am wearing them.
TS, MrsMick6 would agree with you but I will pass, but given how many kids we have I don't think that will be an option. I am sorry to hear that you are struggling again. I do compare myself with you as we are of the same age, height and weight so I don't want you dropping off the runner's list. Do you remember my stats, 50% per AG after 50
Impey, 2 more years no big deal, go get it, you are still a youngster.
I thought you would like to see my collection of turkeys, this is a mum with many many little ones enjoying my front lawn.
