Persistent Foot Pain Since April...

Posted: 23/09/2016 at 20:36

Sarah I can't provide a diagnosis but I have a similar problem, and I've come to the conclusion that it is some sort of inflammation in at least one of the tendons in the foot.

It does come and go, and I am pain free in some footwear (factory work boots) but other footwear (office brogues) make it worse. Taping has helped. Ankle stregthening exercises have helped.

I think we expect soft tissue injuries to heal in a few days or weeks, but in fact they can take months, even years. I  think you should do all the things that help, and as few as possible of the things that don't, and hopefully it will improve

Soft Tissue Injury on Foot

Is it possibly Morton's Neuroma? I don't know much about it but I have seen people on here with similar symptons.

because it is a motorway...even with all those runners it's a very fast course. My clubmate pb'ed today from middle of the pack. It's easy to dismiss big races these days, but I remember when G
NR had lads who'd been out all night and decided to do it for a laugh, it's influenced millions of people to get out and run, in an area that sorely needed it at the time.

Adductor injury

Looking back at your original thread, I am surprised that you were still racing in March. If you had those symptoms in January, and continued for another 8 weeks, you have done a lot of  further damage

I considered the surgery, and after talking to the doctor I rejected the idea. He was of the opinion that if I could not walk or function day to day it may help, but it was not a long term solution and was in fact what he called "end-game stuff".

I am seeing a groin rehab specialist but it is really quite simple, special exercises for specific abdominal muscles, gentle uphill running, and 100% focus on the alignment and orientation of the pelvis.

Three months rest sounds conservative from my experience, but I know a guy from RW who has overcome the condition and is regularly running trail marathons on the south downs and turning in sub 21 parkruns.

I'm not angry at all, is that what you say to anyone with a different point of view? Very similar to VD, uncanny.
I use the local gym at ??4 a time. It's a bit old and scruffy, and not many people go, but it does the job. Should I start a petition to persuade Bannatynes to let me use their gym free? Park run only exists because of the goodwill of a hell of a lot of people not even remotely connected to the running community, I think it's a privilege to be able to run in some of the venues not an entitlement.

Yes Peter but money flows in from sponsors presumably based on the number of people participating and its directors are paid and it employs staff. If you are a parish councillor volunteering in your spare time that is hard to accept. I'm certainly not going to try to defend the financial behaviour of the national trust, but I'll defend its right to refuse another commercial organisation the free use of its facilities if it wants to.

You haven't made clear what is wrong with the venue that you've been offered though. Why do you demand that you run on the NT property? Is it some sort of political chip on your shoulder? If I don't like a local park run venue, I don't go to the nearest beauty spot and spit my dummy out if they don't give me carte Blanche to tear it up with a couple of hundred other runners
nobody put park run in charge of the NT property in enniskillen, and like the guys in little stoke perhaps this particular manager sees a disconnect between the commercial organisation that is park run wanting free use of the facilities that he is paid to look after. The council, who probably have more of an interest in the undoubted benefits that park run brings to its runners and venues, has given you a venue, so like I asked before just what is the problem?
