Owch ...... Heel pain
6:36pm, 17 Aug 2015
Following a cross country run I have developed heel pain! It's on the back of the heel, isolated to a 5cm area and it is so bad that I couldn't run. I have done all of the usual things like ice, heat, ibuprofen, rest and massage and today it feels a bit better. I'm itching to run and can't take much more core exercises so I could do with some advice!
How long do you leave an injury like this before ' trying' it out?
Was it plantar fascilitis?
What would you do? a) Don't run for another week. b) Run a bit. c) Back on the half training programme.
Please let me know what you think!

ChrisHBI don't think PF comes suddenly and it certainly doesn't go quickly. Also, you can run on it until it's really bad.
Try running barefoot on some suitable grass and see what happens to your heel.
Ibuprofen only masks pain and doesn't cause healing, so don't be deceived.
