Running 8 years post ttt
« on: August 19, 2020, 11:16:47 PM »
Well it's been a while since I last posted here..

In short, I had a fulkerson osteotomy and vmo advancement nearly 8 years agoand it worked!

One thing I've never been able to do much is run without pain in my shin. Never really been much of an issue to me as I was never much of a runner in the first place.
Anyhow, getting off track here, my wife would like to try out the couch to 5 k and I'd like to join her if possible. Has anyone any suggestions regarding managing the shin discomfort? Hopefully it'll be a case of finding the right footwear. I've got 3 screws lurking there but I think they're probably best off staying put so long after and I don't think it would be worth risking upsetting the nerves there again as they're still a bit iffy at times.

Insight would be much appreciated!

Brooks running shoes are the absolute best but should be purchased according to both length (and the more commonly neglected width measurements)

D width- everything in the stores has this width
2E width- a little wider, you'll have to shop in stores- figure out which pair is best- then order online; I own a pair of size 13 2e adrenaline GTS--->extremely comfortable
4E width- the widest- you probably should go with D or 2E
