And some brutal massage sorted mine out, eventually. Kim should be able to advise.

Thanks Lard. Janet has had the same problem so we have some shoe inserts already.
Don't feel particularly motivated to get it sorted with no decent races on the horizon.

That's been my problem as well this year - not enough motivation to really protect my heels for a bit

And golf is usually the most painful activity and according to the physio might well have been what set it off in the first place.

Glad you've had it looked, at & found a sort-of "answer". Judging by Bill's remark, golf is treacherous! I think i'll stick to rock climbing....

Didn't you used to have expensive customised inserts for everything, including indoor shoes? Helen now has them for running, & can run / O again.

Also v little motivation now, races will all be cancelled I'm sure. Sad. POM 2021, let's hope.

I gave up my orthotics years ago.
They created as many problems as they solved. I always struggled to see the theory when most of my running is on rough uneven ground.

Still nothing on the horizon to train for (except possibly the SHI weekend in November). It's a shame there aren't any MTBO events...

That fixture list looks even sadder than the BOF one. The only one I might have considered clashes with my golf weekend.
I just can't be bothered with any of this virtual stuff...
