Will pass on your thoughts tomorrow when I have my next session. Yes he specialises in Sports injuries. Also had my gait checked last october and confirmed I was in the right shoe. It was toss up between the Brooks or the K16s, stuck with what I knew, Went through the 16's then got 17's.
Now as I say giving the Brooks GTS a go. Only other change was some extensive running in trail shoes over xmas in the snow. Whether these have triggered something?
I have just had to withdraw from this years VLM due to Retrocalaneal Bursitis. It flared up on a run back on the 7th Jan. After a good solid 10 weeks of training before hand
I have laid off Running ( still cycling and swimming) and taking Anti Inflams ( diclofenac and Iburprofen - Not at the same time I might add) Raising it, icing it etc etc.
Runners weren't old only had 100miles in and the same model as always use ( kayano's) although the model number had increased from a 16 to a 17, normally just cosmetic changes I believe but wondering if this has had an effect. Subsequently changed to Brooks and these feel far more comfortable.
Every time it has felt better and I start running again it flairs back up ( been having some ultrasound). Currently 2 weeks into 3 weeks of total running abstinence but it just not feeling quite right.
I am starting to get very frustrated that it just won't go away. Any suggestions or exercises to accelerate things? I have weekly ultrasound and massage also. Desperate to get back out running.
