I completed my first half marathon 2 days ago in 2:16. I was fine for the first 9 miles until I noticed a severe pain coming from the arch of my foot (I am flat footed). I stopped to walk for a bit, thinking it would help but it just made things worse to run again.
Having a look at my pictures, other than the pained expressions. I have noticed I am doing some mammoth heel striking. I am aware I do this but can't seem to work out how to strike with my forefoot, without running on tip toes.
Just wondering if anyone had any similar experiences and could share some tips in teaching myself to run with better form.
