Where to start? As one of my VRB’s said recently how do you eat an elephant? (There were various answers!)
So today is a story of the good, bad & ugly....
The good - I had a proper gait analysis - on a running machine, with a video in slo mo and lots of angled lines on the screen.... ended up with Cloud On Ace - very comfortable (expensive) running shoes.
The bad - toe cramp in right foot is still there after around 4K onward but the burning under the ball on the same foot is gone BUT I now also have a burning under my left foot.
The ugly - I know I didn’t sleep properly last night and probably didn’t drink enough water today.
Result - A very very hard, painful run.
I kept having to stop (especially in last 2 km) to wiggle toes and move my feet around. It’s the hardest run I’ve ever done.
I got through it by telling myself that I know at least two of you ( sallenson and Fatdad71 ) would be giving your right arm to be able to be doing this tonight...
Going to look into some inserts for cushioning or something.
I got through it, but only just!!
