Hi, I'm suffering from PF - not run now since January so MEGA fed up. I should have been training for the Coniston 14 in a few weeks but this heel thing has stopped everything. I went to a physiko who said rest, ice, stretching etc but no running. I find I am better if I dont wear flat shoes, i.e. house slippers.
I am three and a half stone overweight, the physio said that could be a problem with the PF
Has anyone found that loosing excess weight helps the PF?. I was all fired up at the beginning of the year with my diet and excercise plan, I wanted to loose this excess blubber by the end of September of this year but now can only do short bursts of excercise on the cross trainer (boring) or on the rowing machine (MEGA boring).
Any help from you people would be great, I just feel like lacing up my trainers and saying 'Sod it' and just going out for a run.
Incidentally, I have custom made othotics, I've had them since 2003 and have run injury free since until now. I think the plantar fascitis started when I was doing some power walking in my lunch hour in just work shoes and not putting my trainers on.
