Just signed up to this site and was hoping for some advice please! I injured my Achilles Tendon approx four weeks ago. I have very flat feet and I over pronate slightly. I have been running/jogging approx 5 years and run approx 2-3 times a week. I bought a new pair of running shoes from a specialist shop in the summer. They reccommended a motion control shoe. A few weeks Iater I ran a hilly 10k race, and approx a week or so after, my ankle had a constant ache and felt weak on walking on it. I saw a podiatrst and she advised me to rest for two weeks and they sold me a pair of orthodic insoles. Unfortunately the insole cut into the sides of my feet! After two week of no running the pain did go. Have begun gently running again, training for Brighton Brookes 10k and again, the same ache has come back. Just wondered if anyone could recommend anything or has anyone had a similar experience? I also had my shoes checked out in a running shop, was videoed running in them and they do appear to be preventing me from rolling, so I'm confused as what to do! Thanks.
