Any of y’all dealt with a bruised heel before? Think it developed from playing soccer. Going on 2 weeks now and it’s still nagging me. Don’t think it’s plantars because it’s not a sharp pain, just dull and always sort of there.



Could be achilles tendinitis.

I had this due to a shoe change. Changed the shoes back to my 4mm drop and did some Achilles stretch and it went away.

Tempo run last night. 35 mins. 4.5 miles at a 7:53 pace. Tempo runs and the 800m intervals are really helping my speed out. Felt great after the run and thought I could have pushed it harder.

I keep going back and forth on that.

I’ve mentioned it before, but I was running in Hoka’s and I play soccer twice a week - so all low drop. Bought some New Balance and Asics that are 8 to 10 mm drop and was having shin issues then two weeks ago this heel pain started after I played two pretty intense soccer games two days in a row.

Reading up on Achilles tendinitis, most places recommend running in higher drop to ease the tension on the Achilles and also doing eccentric calf raises as a remedy.

I went up in drop with a New Balance shoe (12mm) and had IT Band problems. I went down in drop to an Altra shoe (0mm) and had Achilles issue. Going back to my standard 4mm drop and some stretching solved both issues.

My next shoe will be a 5mm drop Hoka. Hopefully that's close enough to keep from blowing something else up.

Roots ...I was waiting to run until I felt mentally clear and I'm almost 100% there..today I felt the desire to run , except it was 20 degrees.

No races till fall for me & I might run watchless next week but post distance to strava.

I think that why haven't experienced any issues with Achilles flare-ups. I either run in 12mm or 10mm drop shoes, and I have one pair of 8mm racing flats that I only use in 4mi-and-under conditions. Traditionally I haven't had issues with my IT band, and while I want to try out some of these low drop shoes that seemingly everyone uses I'm afraid the initial growing pains won't be worth it.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
Basically, the lower drop is better if you adjust to it and your form adapts. I wouldn't recommend switching from 12mm to 2mm overnight, especially if you are running 30 miles per work or more. I would switch to like 8mm or 6mm first and transition to zero drop over the course of several weeks or even months. During that time, you might find that you do best with some 2-4mm. If that is the case, you might be better off sticking with that instead of going full zero drop. You might also want to limit hill running while transitioning.

Any time I've tried to change from 4mm drop (up or down), I've blown something up.

I didn’t have any issues going from 10 to 4, but I also wasn’t playing soccer during that time and I’m sure soccer cleats are 0...so now I’ve been switching between 10 and 0. I’m still not positive if I have tendinitis or a bruise from overuse. Gonna try to run this weekend and see what happens. I happened to have a knee injury occur simultaneously so I’ve been laid up.

Probably a good sign that 4mm is your sweet spot.

Get better man. You were making some strides (no pun intended). I was looking forward to what you would do at The Woodlands.

I've been sticking to my plan for my half in a few weeks. I don't think I can sustain my goal pace for the entire race, but I plan to go out pacing for a 1:45 and progressively drop to goal pace for the final 7 or so.

Holy crap I think I got tendinitis in my foot again. Hurts on top of my foot when I try to extend it forward a good bit, and when I put a lot of pressure on it. FML

Today was my first time breaking double digits miles in over a month. My pace was OK and the weather was nice. I think when I left the thermometer was above freezing and it was truly the first time I can remember needing to wear sunglasses. I'm very much looking forward to April/May running and not having to deal with slush or unplowed paths, and running with gloves.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
First run in almost 3 weeks for me yesterday. Was out with a knee issue then my heel issue, so did an easy 3 miles. Knee felt fine and strangely my heel was a non issue. Going to try to ramp up miles even though work is getting hectic.

For anyone in New Orleans, my Sunday run was with a new running group. Some friends of friends started a group called the NOLA Running Anoles . Can follow them on Strava and Instagram, they meet up usually the last or second to last Sunday of the month at Audubon for usually a 4 miler but obviously can run what you want. Group warm up and group cool down afterwards with beer and donuts, though I think it’s BYO. Just trying to put word out for them, it’s a good group.

Love my run group here in Bham. Makes showing up and putting in long miles much easier.

It's been 2 weeks since I last ran. Life hit me with a bunch of crap all at once. Oh well. Just gotta lace up the shoes and get out the door again tomorrow morning and start over.

What I said this morning after not running for 2 months. It was AWFUL. But should get easier as time goes by.
