I haven't been on here lately due to pressure of work. I do a parkrun every week now but the last three weeks have only run once in between. On Thursday I got a bit of heel pain but ignored it. Today on the parkrun my heel started to hurt quite badly - I finished but then hobbled home and it is difficult to walk properly now. It sounds like it is plantar fasciitis - has anybody had this who can give me advice?? It is a sharp throbbing pain in the middle of my heel.
I have always had very, very tight Achilles and calf muscles so that might be the problem and only started running in December after half a century of inactivitity!
