Our expert says:
Whenever you start walking or exercising there is a risk of injury as your body adapts to the increase in workload. Heel injury is a very common foot complaint when starting out. It is very important to stretch your calf muscles regularly and to build up your program gradually. Make sure you have a suitable pair of shoes. I would also suggest regularly rubbing cream into your heaals to keep the skin soft and supple.
