Hi BF community. I have a bit of a problem. I have transitioned to barefoot running and minimalist (mostly minimal in earth runner sandals) for the last 2 years. I've had a few injuries that mostly I can point to my overzealousness as the cause. I have been training for a half marathon, I trained mostly in my sandals, but when the race came it was raining and 30 degrees. I had to run in shoes, but they are soft star, totally flat, thin, flexible shoes.5mm between me and the ground, 0 drop. I got to about mile 10-11 and had some intense knee pain that had been present before on some longer runs but hadn't persisted. Here, a day after still with the pain, I realize it is runners knee which I haven't experienced since I ran with orthotics in college maybe 3-4 years ago. I'm worried that it is back and why. My right side is almost an inch shorter than my left (the bones were physically measured), but with running minimalist I figured I would adapt to that pattern, people have overcome far worse discrepancies without issues. My tendonitis and PF that occurred during my last 2 year transitioning have all been on my right side. Is my right side always just going to take a beating because it's short? Should I be seeing someone? I noticed that I have less problems when I incorporate a lifting schedule of some sort. It's just hard to keep up with. I want to be able to run more half and a full sooner or later, and right now that doesn't look like a reasonable idea. Please help!
