Hi, I started the c25k last October had a few ups and down along the way, had been getting on great when in April once I had completed a 5k race I took a terrible pain in the arch of my foot. To cut a long story short I had to get a CT scan which showed I had a fractured bone which had healed ok, and a few issues with ligament and inflammation. I had a few sessions wth a physio who did a great job on my foot - but she dealt me a terrible blow when she said I have poor biomechanics in my feet and should give it up! During my few months running I absolutely loved it and loved all the benefits it gave me mentally and physically.... Has anyone else experienced/told this? I don't know whether to get a second opinion....
Any replies gratefully received! (an earlier post from a month ago)
I saw a podiatrist today and he looked at my CT scan said I had a lot of issues with my foot and should do a non-impact exercise i.e. swimming he said some people are just not built to run! He said when he is driving along he sees people who glide along and others who should simply not run! He made me an insole and sent me on my way
I have an appointment with my GP in a few weeks who incidently walks with a limp due to a car accident.. but he runs, so im hoping I can get some positive news from someone who understands the need to want to run!
