I agree with Zorbs. I would follow the advice of the physio, who's going to be the expert in this area. If they say to change shoes, I think it's worth it vs. risking further injury and not being able to do the race.

You already did the best thing by getting to physio quickly.

I am in week 8 of 1/2marathon training. I have been running 3/4x per week. I cross train on off run days on my elliptical, and do free weights and ab work & attend yoga 2/3x per week. My running shoes were purchased at a running store where they analyzed my gait and told me i needed support b/c i overpronate.

Last tuesday i ran with a group and it pushed me to run faster than i normally do. I strained the lower inside of each leg. The soleus muscles. Wednesday i wrapped with kt tape and did hill training. It was awesome. That night i had lots of adrenaline - i vacuumed my house, did 3 loads of laundry and washed the kitchen floor, i was pumped!

The next day i was hobbling around and could barely walk. I had art done thursday but Skipped my sunday long run, and went to physio yesterday. I brought my shoes and he says the way i wrapped further shortened the soleus muscles, my shoes are too restrictive, to buy flexible ones to allow my calves to move with my stride.

At this point i am willing to try anything but change of shoes at the halfway point of training!? Help
