I do walk from time to time so its not unusual for me to do that amount and never had a problem before. The terrain was boggy on way up and stone/ trail on way down, so rocky. I can understand the pain on the mountain as it has been a little while since wearing my boots even though they are worn in but was surprised I had a problem on the treadmill?
I did 2 days of walking last weekend in hard soled mountain boots (which I have not worn for a while) and on the way down the mountain I had an extremely painful stabbing session in both feet. It eased when I took off the boots and rested my feet the next day so I assumed that it was just my feet getting used to the inflexible boots and the day walking on stone.
I went for a cross country/ trail run the following day and had no problem at all but when I went running on a treadmill 2 days later after about 3k the pain started and became so unbearable I had to stop. I was wearing brand new trainers.
A few years back my podiatrist said I had less cushioning on the balls of my feet then is ideal due to cushioning being pushed towards toes so advised I wore cushioned trainers. I therefore always wear Asics Kayanos as these are supposed to be one of the best for this.
Could it be the new trainers? I thought new trainers were better before they wear down? Or could it be a more severe problem. I am due to walk 27 miles this weekend and dont want it to flare up again.
I havent been out training at all for the last 3 weeks due to the bad ankle so its gonna be a case of what happens on the day. Just dont want to do more damage to the wrist by pressurising joint. I guess i'll just have to wait and see.
I currently have a broken wrist in a full cast and was planning to run in my first marathon in 2 weeks (if my other injury - suspected ligament damage in ankle holds up). I asked my specialist about running in a cast and he said it shouldnt be a problem.
But a few people have mentioned the swelling, will this put extreme pressure on the wrist?
