Sounds like you lost a grip of weight running and eating right? What other cardios have you tried? There are forms of cardio that are less painful than running 5+ miles... I personally did HIIT 15-20 minutes a day, 3 days a week, then intense ab and core routines the other 3 days ( always one full day completely off) to lose my fat ass. I lost 50 pounds of fat in about a year. It came off fast at first, I went from about 40% down to 20% in under 3 months. The other nine was getting down to <10 and stabilizing there.
But I did it without running. A couple examples of exercises that were included in my HIIT routines are burpees, jump squats, Mtn climbers, jumping jacks.... I found that 20 minutes of high intensity exercises worked better than running and did not hurt my joints.
Anyway, sorry for the long post, really hope I was somewhat help :)
You can fr me if you are interested in learning more about what I did to get in shape. I got in shape and trained and stayed in shape for three years before I ran my first cycle.
Taping provides only transient support, with studies 9 , 10 showing that as little as 24 minutes of activity can decrease the effectiveness of taping significantly. Arch taping can be used as definitive treatment or as a trial to determine if the expense of arch supports or orthotics is worth the benefit. Taping may be more cost effective for acute onset of plantar fasciitis, and over-the-counter arch supports and orthotics may be more cost-effective for chronic or recurrent cases of plantar fasciitis and for prevention of injuries. In athletes, arches must be retaped at least for every new game or practice session, whereas an over-the-counter arch support usually lasts a full sports season and a custom orthotic usually lasts for many seasons.
