Hi all, I don't post often but am hoping for a bit of advice. Graduated a few weeks ago and have been continuing with my 5 k route, however the last few runs I've had to take walking breaks. I was diagnosed by my gp with pf last week, and I rested for a few days. When I saw the gp he said no need to stop running, so I started again carefully and stretching lots etc. I'm struggling to manage my 5 k without walking but am desperate to increase my distance gradually. I don't think my foot is holding me back, I just don't know what it is...can't seem to " push through" at the moment. Really want to do a local 10 k in September but I'm wondering if I can get to that distance by then?
