Ouch ☹️

I have just finished week 5 run 3 and even though I really worried about it I actually ran for 20 mins! The problem is heel pain after I have ran only my left foot, I have invested in running shoes I bought neutral ones because of my high instep but I'm constantly in agony ☹️. After researching it i think it's plantar fasciitis. Does anyone have any hints or tips to help me get over this. I am

Signed up for a half marathon in September and starting to panic... thanks

  • I was suffering from sore feet/heels/legs... put it down to impact pain so started running on the grass rather than the pavement at my local park. MUCH improved ever since.

  • Thank you 😊

  • I started getting pain in only my right heel on the bottom and sides after finishing wk3 r2, just had two weeks out went out today it held out but is twinging abit now. Ive heard shock absorbing heel pads are good im ordering some tomorrow to see if it makes any difference

  • Thank you might try that too 😊

  • I have had this since Christmas when ironically I had planned to start running. Bought insoles from Superdrug for nearly all my shoes and last week had an injection which has helped a lot. Not cured but better.

  • Hope it does get better thank you 😊

  • Mines come back again was in total agony cant get into the docs untill end of the month :(
