Different length legs - how to get used to the orthotic?

I have different length legs. Three weeks ago I was given an orthotic at the hospital. It is a heep raise only and 8mm high. I was told try it in all your shoes, if you get tired, take it out and have a rest. I am used to the feel of it now but am finding it hard to exercise as much as I used to. At best it is uncomfortable, at worst painful - both in the shorter and the longer leg. I am getting fed up and frustrated. I have an appointment in 7 weeks time, I know you are not my doctor, but I'd be interested in peoples' actual experience of getting used to thse things. More inside... [more inside]

Why am I not fitter and thinner?

Why am I not fitter and thinner? I started running/walking spring 2007. June that year I did my first 5k in 36 mins. Carried on walking 9 odd miles a week and running 5-8 per week or going on the elliptical trainer an hour or two a week through the summer. [more inside]

Help me take my running a step further

I started running through the walking-running method last year. I have got to the point where I did a 10k run last Sunday; I ran all the way (yay!) and did it in just under 1 hr 9 minutes. The magazine I read, etc, make it clear that to expect to run better/faster/stronger/safer, I need to do some non-running activities now, as well as the running. I am looking at buying a home multigym type thing. Recommendations please! Also - I'd like to increase my hip flexibility - so I can stride longer - I feel I am a bit "tight" at the moment. Best exercises for that? On the machine/ using a ball thing? [more inside]
