    That'll make it almost 18 months for you, won't it? Certainly at the nastier end of the pf spectrum.
    I guess if your pain's gone now you might get back sooner, but I can well understand your caution after so long.

    Glad to hear that at last you seem well on the road to recovery, and that the injection was effective.

    tf , if your reading this , just had letter from hospital to go and get fitted for custom orthotics , been waiting for months and in the meantime been wearing superfeet green ( highly recommended ) . anyway custom built orthotics for the price of a prescription ? and each new pair willstill only cost a perscription because they have got the cast . supplying two pairs to begin with one for normal shoes and one for trainers. well worth a visit to your docs , how much custom orthotics ?

    PF is a bugger. Thought I was clear after pain-free runs of 1hr plus last week, then did a couple of short races this week and am almost back to square one. No pain at all whilst running, or even immediately afterwards, which makes it very hard to judge how much you should be doing; it's not until the following day that you find yourself limping again.
    I still intend to do the Wharfedale Half tomorrow as I've learnt that I get little pain after the first half mile, although what I'll be like by Sunday is another matter. Chances are, I'll be out for a few more weeks.

    Re: Plantar Fasciitis

    PF is a great condition to treat as a physio, as for me I enjoy the 'detective' work as it won't come on for no reason, there'll be something going on with either anatomy, muscle recruitment, foot type, gait, biomechanics...and so the list goes on. It could be a tight gastrocnemius (calf) or the soleus ( a muscle which lies under the gastroc and needs to be stretched differently to a calf stretch).

    Injections are great, but unless the underlying cause(s) is also addressed, it'll more than likely return at some point....sorry!

    My advise, get properly assessed to find out the underlying cause.

    A quick tip to check the often neglected (in terms of stretches, and very relevant to fell running) Soleus muscle. Big toe to door, touch door with knee keeping heel on floor then return knee to start position, keep repeating, bringing your toe away from the door by a cm each time. You should be able to bring your big toe back approx. 4-6 inches before the heel starts to lift off the floor as you touch your knee to the door. Compare each foot.

    good luck!
    No pain no gain...if still no gain try more painkillers!
