Pain in the ball of the foot
I'm 42 years old male candidate and running first time in the marathon. Since last 3 months I started to feel pain (occasionally) in the ball of the foot. I always walk 100 minutes a day. I don't know why this pain has started suddenly. I started running since last 2 months. Doctor suggested me to use vulgus pad (what kind of vulgus pad I should go for) in the shoes. Please advice.

Dear Mr. Kumar,
Firstly, sorry for the late reply. Due to technical reasons on my end,I was not able to reply earlier.
The pain may be due to a corn on the base of your foot. It could also be aggravated by excessive walking- 100 minutes a day is too much.
You could try a pad- it might help.

Your BP is on the higher side, but it is at a level where it could be controlled by lifestyle changes, such as regular exercise, and reduction of salt intake. If the BP persists above 140/90, then you MAY need to take medications. Speak to your doctor about it.

Pain in Heels
Hi Doctor, I've actively participated in ADHM 2010, 2011 and SCMM 2011. Now I'm preparing for ADHM 2012 which is scheduled on 30th September 2012. Off lately, I'm feeling pain on my heels. I am 5'10" and weighing 86 Kgs. I wear ASICS Gel Kayano shoes and i have normal pronation. Let me know what can be the possible causes of the heel pain and how can it be cured ?

Dear Ashu,
Firstly, sorry for the late reply. Due to technical reasons on my end,I was not able to reply earlier.

My guess is you are striking the ground very hard when you are landing on your heel. I would also suggest 6 kg of weight loss, which will reduce the stress on your heel, as you strike the ground.

Participation in Standard Chartered Mumbai International Marathon 2013
I am 28yrs(Male) as 03/10/2012. Existing medical condition - Was asthmatic, sometimes uses Asthalin Inhaler for mild attacks. Sometimes, get shooting pain towards the chest when physical activity is done. Have taken medical advice earlier as well. Was told the shooting pain was due to 'Gas'. Some doctors have told me it was due to change of weather. However, this is all history as i do not run like earlier. As far as my running history is concerned, I am a state level middle distance runner in 1500m & 800m. However, that is history since i have not ran for the past 8 yrs. I have taken part in the Mumbai International Marathon 1st edition as in 2004. I want to know whether i can run the next edition? I no longer run or have taken part in any track & field competitions or road races since 2005.

weight training
Hello,
I am 25 yrs old and just want to know some weight training workout and food to maintain my weight and healthy look.

Utkarsh,
You need to be more specific in your query. A basic weight training workout would be a circuit training workout, where you do 8-10 different exercises (divided between upper and lower body), for 10-15 reps each. One set of each is considered one circuit. You should start with one, and build up to 3 circuits. Take adequate rest between sets.

Advise on Heart Beat
Dear sir,

I am 39 years old, weight 87 KG, Height 178 cm. I have been running for last three years 4-5 km thrice a week. Last year I had practiced for half marathon and completed in 2:44 hrs.

What I have realized during practice that my heart beat is 165 after running for 7Km. For my age it should be 152 if working out at 85% of peak rate. I do not encounter any breathlessness, no black out and no loss of balance even after running for 90 minutes. I have been getting done my ECG and treadmill on yearly basis and it is normal. I want to take your advise if I am overexerting my heart muscles or it is fine as long as there are no physical symptoms that tell me I am overexerting? Please advise?

Dear Harsh,

It sounds like all your parameters are fine, and you are getting yourself regularly checked. In that case, its okay for your heart rate to be at 165 beats/min during exercise. As you get fitter it will be slightly lower at the same speed.

Knee injury

My name is joslin and i am planning to run the half marathon this years i just wanted to know if it would be safe cause i had a acl reconstruction done a year before and i don't want to further damage it.

Dear Jos,
since you have had knee surgery done it would be best to meet your surgeon and seek advice on whether to run. It's difficult to make a general recommendation in this case.
