Hi quiet water hing,|
It has been exactly 12 months since I developed pf. I stopped running for 3 weeks when I first found out. I went swimming instead and I thought I got better. When I started running again, the pain flared up in about 15 minutes. I rested for another 2 weeks, still not cured. So I started going to see a physiotherapist. I went to 18 sessions altogether, I listened to everything the PT told me to do. 18 sessions later, still no good. But like you said, I am also a 40+ old guy. I need to run!!!! So I started running on grass surface for about 1 month and it seem to help a little. The pain didn't go away nor did it get worse. I have since cancelled a few marathons and cut down my training. I didn't run on hard surface for about 3 months. 6 months later, I convinced myself that it was about time to get a xray to see if the pf turned into a heel spur which it did. Now I still have pf but it only tries to attack me when I run pass 30 km.
So my advise to you is ~ Rest up for about a month to see if it gets better. If not, just go ahead and run again but slow down the pace and cut down everything, I think it will heal eventually but since we are runners, it will take longer time to heal than non runners, unless we don't run at all.
You can also try wearing this to sleep. Good luck.
