Injuries

When I run 3k or more my right toes and ball of my foot go numb. I have tried loosening my shoelace but it made no difference. Please help.

Numbness in the foot can sometimes be related to the tightness of your shoelaces, but there may be other reasons for the discomfort. You could start by visiting a specialist shoe retailer to ascertain if your shoes are the cause of the issue. If the problem persists then you should seek advice from a physiotherapist or podiatrist or other professional.

I have a recurring popliteal injury, and don't have the funds to see a sports physio. Any ideas please?

I get really sore calves when running, especially up hills and it really affects my running. I do stretch them but is there anything else I can do to help them? (I walked on my toes for 13 years which I think is the main cause)
