The variety of different suggestions means that you really need to get a medical opinion quickly, as, if rest is the cure, this is less of a problem for most people over a winter period.

Delaying a diagnosis could prolong the cure

I'm responsible for a few peeks at your blog - I read it before we went in September and just had another look as you mentioned Loft Beck. I wanted to see what the views were like as sadly we saw nothing at all the day we were there, being the worst weather of our trip! Closely followed by Nine Standards, and Kidsty Pike was left out altogether because of the wind but that's another story! Now, how to see them all... oh may just have to do the walk again, though knowing our luck the bad weather would be on the same days!

With regards to your feet, I was diagnosed by my GP back in January with plantar fasciitis (without him even looking at my feet!)and it went after doing exercises, best one rolling foot over bottle (of wine, empty!)It unfortunately came back 2 weeks before we did the Coast to Coast and this time I went straight to a podiatrist worrying that I'd have problems on the walk. He said he didn't think I'd ever had plantar fasciitis and had got collapsed foot arches. Luckily wearing my leather boots every day with a light support seemed to work and I didn't suffer, but definitely get it sorted now, I was very worried that I'd struggle because of the wrong diagnosis.

SS Ta muchly. Its usually apparent after we come back from shopping on a Saturday. Maybe my feet are like the rest of me, and hate shopping.

Glad the blog was of some help....even if it was only for the views.
We didn't do KP either,as you will have spooted, but others who did,assured us that all we missed was hailstones.Similar in size to a small dog. like we hads ontop of Lining Crag.

Why did you have small dogs on top of Lining Crag?

(And don't tell me they were pekes)

Loc: West Lancs.
Ive just inspected the soles on my walking shoes that I used for both C2C trips.
I used to do this regularly when I was running, not simply to check for wear but for any changes in gait.
I am a heel lander and slightly heavier on my right foot.
The wear pattern on my right shoe showed central heel deteriation, whilst on my left, the wear was more to the inside of the heel.
My shoes have never shown inside of heel wear over outside of heel before.
This pattern relates only to these walking shoes although I have many pairs of all types of walking footwear.
The thing is, from the first time you wear footwear, walking over some distance, the intial wear pattern that is started sets how the shoe will mostly wear from that first walk on.
It is like a car tyre that is wearing on the inside. Swapping it to the rear wheels wont make it wear evenly, it will always favour that initial wear area.
What I think happened to set off this wear pattern on these shoes, was because I purposely altered my gait in an attempt to relieve the pain from those horendous ball of foot blisters that I suffered. I will keep them just for messing about in now as i think they are finished for any serious walking.
Dave.
