As I (very flippantly) said very early days when this thread started, I thought she was just after a free pair of Jimmy Choos or Loboutins (however you spell it). I think one of her most recent comments was that she got a pair from M&S. Rock 'n Roll...
Second the above comment. My experience was/ is PF and despite very good intervention and help ( consultant and physio) it just hasn't responded despite specific excersises and treatment.
I was never a particularly good runner but put in the miles and enjoyed it but have to say that the change to road cycling has been a lot kinder to me (not overweight or unfit) but just found it more beneficial as no impact on knees or ankles.
I still try a run once or twice a week, but within a couple of miles find the PF pain flares up so generally revert back to the bike and do find it an awful lot easier, I'm not sure of the specifics, but find my feet feel really well supporated my cycling shoes (carbon sole, so feel very rigid and have gel inserts which helps the general comfort)
i guess I'm trying to say that cycling worked for me, although has now become my favoured activity, although still a really keen follower of tri, hence my reasons for hanging about here!
Hope you enjoy your bike, even if as a temporary alternative!
hi, thought this may be of interest to some of you, fingers crossed I may be able to take part if PF finally responds to treatment, otherwise will be there to watch. ( Can vouch for it being a fast circuit)
