where I bought this ankle brace. . . . It's marvelous! I still had aches when I ran but I did continue to run (just short distances) and packed my foot with ice on my return . . Whilst crying with the pain. I'm not joking. Gradually after 2 weeks I had no pain and was able to wake up in the morning and once again spring out on my run. I continue to wear the brace while running as support but no longer wear it all day, as I did in the beginning.
Hi there, Advice needed please. I am a teaching assistant and fell off a table trying to reach something off a top shelf for a child - sober as a judge (not that they all are I suspect) last year which resulted in a torn ligament - well that's what the doctor said anyway . . . Well this year I've lost nearly 4 stone and started running with a friend. We're doing the 'Race for Life' in 3 weeks time and I know it's only 3 1/2 miles but even so . . . I have sustained an ankle injury (probably reacurring - see above)through the training and I'm in agony. Not only through the injury itself but through actually not being able to run for a week. We only run 3/4 times weekly and approx 4 miles a go. I have taken it upon myself to treat this with ibuprofen (anti-inflamitory) and diclofenac spray. This has not worked at all and now I'm struggling with everything. I want to run as it means I can eat what I like (in moderation) and have a happy and slim life! I also don't want to let my running partner down.
Please, PLEASE help me with a solution . . . I have a docs appointment this Thurs but he'll only tell me to rest it won't he!!!
Hi, I'm new to this site and wanted to solve my problem. I have read all the messages on this site concerning this problem and have to say that I'm so jolly glad I'm not alone with my problem - though I obviously wouldn't wish it on my worst enemie! Or maybe I would!!!
I ran yesterday (4 miles) and cut out any dairy from my diet at least 5 hours before my run. I normally eat a salad and have soft cheese with this at lunch. I had ham instead. I still ate an apple though at morning break, (11ish) and I was fine. I wonder if it may be phsycological as some problems are and will keep everyone updated if the issue persists. I have today been to town and looked at artichoke tablets and the price of them is huge, £9.99 a month. I am not a rich bird!!! I will though be buying them if all else fails . . . . I'll save that much in blushes and loo paper!
I am running in the 'Race for life' in a months time and have to solve the issue before them as there will obviously be limited toilet facilities and the embarrasement of it all on the day. . . After al who wants a 'GO FASTER' stripe on the back of their shorts in a nice / or not so shade!
Thanks everyone for your tips and I'm so glad I was passed a link to this site by a stranger - Thanks stranger.
