TREATMENT ROOM

Sports therapist Lawrence Knott shares his injury-beating advice. This month: plantar fasciitis

Dreaded plantar fasciitis can plague runners for a very long time if not treated well and in good time. The plantar fascia is a tough band of tissue on the underside of the foot which we use to propel ourselves during the running phase. Plantar fasciitis (PF) comes about through a range of different things, but most commonly ill-fitting shoes or excessive/increased mileage. It’s important that you have a biomechanical assessment prior to having your new running trainers fitted by a specialist. However, even if your biomechanics are correct, sometimes plantar fasciitis is unavoidable.

About Men's Running

By the time you read this, the spring race season will be well and truly underway and those of you who have trained for a specific event will hopefully have seen the fruits of your labours in PBs and long-held goals achieved. Once you’ve completed a big event it’s understandable to want to take a few days off before running again. But sometimes those days can become weeks, the weeks months, and before you know it you’re no longer on talking terms with your trainers. To stop that from happening, we take a look at the opportunities open to runners who find themselves with all the fitness but not the focus. One obvious path is to take your running abroad. As any seasoned traveller will tell you, the best way to explore a location is by foot and that certainly proved to be the case for our writer, Simon, who decided to combine his passion for running with a life-long ambition to visit Cuba (page 34). If you fancy something closer to home you can utilise the very powerful bit of tech on your wrist to create some new training goals (page 48), or follow our expert advice on how to make the move from tarmac to trail (page 23). Or, if you’re already au fait with off-road, why not take a leaf out of Kilian Jornet’s book and run up Mount Everest (page 54)? For more inspiration on what to do with your current peak condition head over to mensrunning.co.uk and follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
