Heels hurt ……..
Mundane, because no running.. took the day off to repair the broken parts. Have a sore heel on the right leg. The ‘Shoe-Dog’ gait testing mechanism at Road Runners tells me, that I put 53% weight of the body on my right leg,
Though I got a new pair of Asics, but the pain in the heels, early morning while getting out of the bed, is awful. Googled a bit, and found that it is called as Plantar Fasciitis. Plantar Fasciia is the connective tissue that runs from the heel to the base of the toes
Plantar Fasciitis, is a common form of injury among runners. It happens because of various reasons-
- Old pair of running shoes, without much cushion.
- sudden increase in mileage, leading to over stress of the legs
- this is related to the running form, where heels strike the ground first.
