I’ve been getting a few messages and questions about the Boot so here’s an update with a short video Chris from @cojofilms has put this together from a recent video diary.
Since August 2022, I have been in chronic pain with my left foot. Have I stopped running? No, because I have never had injuries before apart from the occasional niggle that was gone in a day or two. So I kept thinking the issue with my foot would go after a week. Well fast forward now to January 2023 and after many doctor appointments over recent months it seems I have alot of Inflamation in my foot.
I have two issues going on - 1 plantar Fascitus and 2 Heel Fat Pad Sydrome - the fat pad in heel has thinned a good bit. Thinning of fat pad in my heel is the last place I want it to go from - like there are far more productive areas for it to go from
Anyway the plan to be in the Sahara next month is still there.
How I’m going to complete the race is the actual question watch this space.
The boot is meant to take the load off my foot. If only I stopped running now to give myself a proper chance
But I just can’t do it.
