I'm new to the forum, i've not had a chance to look around fully yet so i apologise if there are answers elsewhere to my questions.
I want to get into running and maybe eventually triathlons / dualthlons.The problem is I have VERY flat feet. I've tried to get into running before but have always had to stop due to shin splints and annoying plantar fascitis. I make sure I have decent shoes, Ive got some Saucony ones (Stabil CS?) that were recommended by a running shop who even watched me wearing them whilst on a treadmill to make sure they were ok.
I'm frustrated by not being able to get into running. I'm 29 and slightly overweight, which i guess doesnt help. Is there anything I can try to help my feet? Does anyone else on here have flat feet and what do you recommend? Are there any strengthening exercises I can do? I've even tried Sole insoles but they havent helped much at all. I'm wondering if Im just not made to be a runner! Any advice welcome.
