I log in 4 miles this morning, my long run.
Lately I have a problem with my left heel. It hurts when I walk, especially in the morning right after get out of bed or when I sitting for a while. However, that heel doesn't bother me when I run. But I got shin fling. After less than 1/2 mile, my shin very hot and hurt. I stop and stretch, after another mile I stretch again. Then after 2 miles I feel better and run the rest of the way. But it was hard. I constantly cheer myself up. Come on Mai, you gotta do this. You can, just reach to that lamp post over there.... ughgh

Crown of the road.
Check the inside of the shoe for a seam.
Almost everyone's feet are different sizes though not enough to be a problem. You may have enough of a size difference to make shoe fit a problem.
Your left foot pronates more, check the sole wear pattern.

Do you wear socks? There are double layer socks for the blister-prone.
Don't wear cotton socks.
I run on the outer front edge of both feet. I'm using Nike dry fit running socks. They are cotton but the look porous like wicken socks.

Sounds like plantar fasciitis. Is the pain on the bottom of your heel?

Ice, NSAIDs, roll a golf ball(rolling pin, baby food jar) under your arch.

Stretch your calves.

For the shins: tap the shin bone near the knee and near the ankle. If that does not make it hurt, proceed for shin splints.

If it does hurt, see your doctor.

Again with the ice and NSAIDS.

For both of these you need to find alternative activities to give the injuries a chance to start healing for at least 2 weeks.

HC, Thanks for all the advice. I will try out.
"For the shins: tap the shin bone near the knee and near the ankle. "
Shin splints: can you be a bit clearer. what I should tap with? When should I tap it?

My race is in 4 weeks. Will I have enough time to train if I take 2 weeks off? I am kind of worry about that. Is biking a good alternative?
Thanks, Mai

Just tap with your fingers. When doesn't matter, if it's shin splints they won't hurt. Stress fractures are usually more or less mid-bone, tapping anywhere on the bone will hurt.

Don't worry about your performance, fixing this is more important long term.

You won't lose any fitness as long as you cross train.

Cycling is a fine alternative. So is swimming and water running.

Default My first 5k

29 minutes, 34 seconds - I was at the back of the fast people, and felt great.

Mai, think long term, if this race isn't right, don't ruin yourself for the next one!

Thanks, I tapped them and they are not hurt, so it's good news right?
I will do cycling now and swim ( I am not really a good swimmer).
Thank again,
Mai
