There you go SE...all's fair in love, war and posting!!:dKylie said:Haha! That's ok, I don't mind you hijacking my thread at all!!
I've found a shop near me that does the gait analysis so I'm off there next week. In the mean time, I'll do those excersises and warm up a little better before my run in the evenings.
Will do the walking on the heels for 5 mins each day at home, think I might get a few strange looks if I do it in the office!! Still, it might put a smile on some of the miserable gits faces!!!
Buy an aqua jogger and run in the pool.Steady Edwina said:Ok been to see the podiatrist today and I don't have classic MTSS but peristosis - its an inflamation of the sheath and connective tissue around the shin bone. If it gets worse there is a high chance I'll develop a stress fracture - he tested for this and fortunately I don't have any.
I've had an adjustment to my orthotics, some shin supports and I've been advised to try and reduce my training intensity by 25% (he wanted me to rest completely but understands I have a race later this month). I'm trying to think how best to do this but still maintain the stamina I've recently gained not sure whether to stick with 3 runs but reduce the mileage of my longer runs or to do maybe just do 2 runs and maybe substitute a run for some form of cross training but it would need to be something to maintain cardiovascular fitness.
I've also got to try and get off the roads for one of my runs.
