I have been running for over a year. During that time I have had quite a few problems with shin splints and tight calf muscles. I have had gait analysis done - neutral runner - and seen a physio - normal feet. The shin splints slowly improved after stretching my calf muscles as often as I could. Ten days ago, I completed a half marathon and noticed that the outside and top of my right foot was really tender afterwards. It improved slightly with rest but I saw a physio (different one) today who said I have ligament damage caused by combination of over use and flat feet. Is it possible to develop flat feet over a year of running?!? If so then it would mean I have been wearing the wrong trainers which could explain the calf problems! Thanks for reading.
