On Tuesday night when running with my group of amazing runners I had a slight feeling in my left foot. Like I’d laced up a bit too tight and squashed my foot slightly. Not pain, not even discomfort really, just a feeling.
It felt fine tonight so I hot footed it out for an interval session. The feeling came back but I was fine with that. I was sure it would settle and fade.
It wasn’t too bad but as I neared the end of my second set I realised that, rather than fading away, in fact it was getting worse. And I could feel myself adjusting my gait to compensate. Not good.
I curtailed my session and tried to jog home but it was still sore so I walked as briskly as I could, balancing the discomfort with trying to stay warm.
I’ve rested it the best I can this evening but it’s still sore after a few steps. The pain is in a very unusual place so it’s hard to figure out what it is or what I’ve done. So a few days of rest lay ahead, hoping it’s just a little thing that’ll sort itself out so I can then get back to marathon training!
