Ok thanks guys. Food for thought. It's "just" the four miles tonight so thought this would be the perfect opportunity to test it out.

Di d my 4 this morning. No problem with the ankle and new orthotics gave me no grief, although I still have a Compeed on my foot from Saturday's first run with them fitted.

However, I woke up with a back ache! Really painful and stiff in the lower back. I am prepared to give up on atheism and pray very very hard that this is not a return to the back problems I had years ago.

It went OK thanks. Took it slow, with the support on. Bit of tenderness there this morning but not much at all. I won't be using the support for a long run (10+) as I refuse to believe that thing won't rub at a certain point and cause an issue. May run in it for tomorrow's 7 miler though.

Got something to say?
