I had a good 14 mile run on Sunday morning... (as many of you know) .. I was sore for a day or so but bounced back pretty fast..
But.. Monday I began having tenderness in my left foot, on the top outside .. the row of bones and tendons that connect with the baby toe (at about the middle of my foot) It doesnt hurt to the touch (or squeeze) and only hurts on and off. I was also sore all the way up my shin on the outer side of the same leg... so this made me think it was a tendon or muscle issue..(praying its not a stress fracture)
I took Mon and Tues completely off from running ... tried to run a bit on the treadmill tonight but it still felt tender...
Heres my questions:
- have any of you ever experienced this? and what helped?
- I need new shoes.. how much do you think needing new shoes has to do with it?
- how long do you think i need to take off?
- My marathon is on Nov 16th.. is this something that could keep me from running it?
