It started to nag me a couple days ago after my long run, but everything else on my body felt so good so I pushed on. I actually think running too fast/hard on the treadmill the other day is what did it in. I really do hate running on the treadmill.
Last night I planned to just do a nice easy jog around the track while my son was at soccer. But my foot had been bugging me all day, so when I got there I just walked with a friend. I did run a couple of laps lightly, but it hurt, so I stopped.
I have a race this Sunday. I don't want to rest! Heck, I don't ever want to rest. I'm very sad.
I'm going to stay off the running until Sunday and I'm going to do my race regardless. If it still hurts next week I'll rest more and maybe even get into the Sports Physio place. I want to put more focus on strength training starting next week anyway.
Whenever I've had my gait assessed I've been told that I'm best in a neutral shoe (which I have) but that I'm borderline on needing some stability. Especially on my left foot - which is the problem one. I plan on doing lots of miles this year so I'll have to bite the bullet and get on this.
My arm is also bugging me (too much bookkeeping lately - probably pre carpal tunnel) and my hubby has a few owies too. Last night we got into bed and passed the muscle rub back and forth a few times. He said we better hurry up and become Grandparents because we're getting old quick - hahhaa. Give me a few years please, like at least 5-7 or so.
