I'm doing a half mara on Sunday. Training has not gone according to plan and I'm a little underprepared, but think I will be OK.
Was going to do my last short run tonight just to keep my legs fresh, but last night I managed to really badly bruise my leg above the knee on the muscle on the outside of the leg. It's swollen and purple and hurts a little when I put weight on/bend the leg.
The shop did say that they will take shoes back if they have been worn on a treadmill, but I don't have easy access to a treadmill. I guess I'll have to try and get access for the next pair.
They think (in the shop) that I am 'splaying' my foot so the toes are pushing into the bottom of the shoe, causing them to go numb. So I need more flexible shoes. But then would I be at risk of knee injuries?
I'll have a look at the videos. Thanks everyone for wonderful help.
