If you’ve been following me / my blog, you’ll know that in April / May after I did the London marathon, and in October / November after I did the Loch Ness marathon I’ve struggled with sore feet. 😦
The arches of my feet in particular – they were sore not so much when I ran, but when I wasn’t running. So much so I took a real break from running in October to December last year to see if it would help. Plantar fasciitis probably (but self diagnosed, and self treatment – rest, ice, massage etc).
It could be from all the running, or it could be my increased use of non supportive boots / work I wear most days for work.
They do feel a bit better after the rest, but they were still a bit sore in December, so, I went out on a limb, and ordered these:
SevenMye Foot Pain Relief Plantar Fasciitis Insole Arch Support https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01DLNNKXQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_QutDyb06ZDQ62
£1.38 (from China I think) … and they work!
I wear them with my work boots / shoes, under my socks and they provide me with the support I need. I’ve been wearing them for about a fortnight (not when I run though, as my trainers are supportive), and my feet feel good. 🙂
They might not look good… but they feel good. Lol. Sorted!
