Sooooooo frustrating.....but have a plan πŸ‘πŸ»

Been to sports injury clinic today for PF. Appears my gait analysis was way off and having watched the vid of me running today slowed right down I can see why I’m struggling.

So, have my orders and feel more in control. Had ultrasound on my heel and a plan going forwards. Would urge anyone struggling to make sure their shoes are right. I did all the right things but still had a problem. Scared to death that running will be over but seems not. Lovely Simon says he can make my shoes better but hey, who needs an excuse to buy new runners!!!!! πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’•πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

That’s so frustrating that you’d gone to the trouble of getting the gait analysis and it still wasn’t right! I’m glad you have a plan now, sounds like you’ve got the right person on it πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Thx. Yes, I researched before I went along, we have a couple of places locally. It is what it is and at least it seems it can be sorted.

Might be worth talking to the shop.. some brands have very good guarantees/ returns policy.

I'm glad you've got a plan now!

I would certainly go back to the shop and let them know that one of their staff has made a mistake when helping you choose your shoes. PF can be so debilitating- keep up the exercises.
