I did a half marathon last Sunday with run/ walk strategy. My training went ok, I got up to 10 miles but then hurt my back and got a cold so the last 2 weeks only did couple of short runs.
I seem to have picked up plantar fasciitis on both feet after the half, the left being bit worse. Never had this before.
Should I call the doctor/ go to physio or will it get better by doing the exercises that they will be giving you anyway?
I still have some naproxen when my back went so have been taking that for the past 3 days. Stretching calves, achilles, rolling the bottom of my foot, doing the towel stretch etc. What more can they really offer you?
I can't be completely immobile as I have to walk to work which is between 3-5 miles. Or would cycling be better?
I was thinking if doesn't get better in couple of weeks doing the above things, I will go to the doctors then.
Does anyone have any personal experience they can share?
