Well after numerous injuries over the years and a unbelievably long recovery period i managed to get back to full trainnig, c'mon!!! 18 weeks under my belt, everything going well, started looking at a few races that i might be interested in and................i'm injured again,lol. Starting to get on my nerves now, its well beyond a joke.
Anyhoo to the problem. I'm not 100% certain when/how i done it, i just know that on my morning run there ws pain in my foot that wasn't there during the previous evenings track session. It may well of happened during that track session but with the adrenaline flowing i can honestly say i didnt feel a thing during warm up, the session or warm down. I do remember having a bit of a unsteady moment when passing over the drain/gutter at the side of the track, apart from that nothing.
The pain run right across where your laces run and first thought were down to maybe me fastening laces to tight, even though i'm careful not to do this.....almost to obsession,lol. Theres no swelling or bruising but there is a slight redness when aggrevated. The pain will die down after a few days of no running but immediatly returns, i even gave it 2 weeks rest with iceing twice a day only to try a run at the end of it and get half a mile down the road before it returned.
Has anybody got any ideas........i'm hoping somebody has had a similar problem and has figured it out and got it sorted. The way i see it it can only be.......muscular, tendon/ligament or bone, right?? It certainly doesn't feel muscular, infact i'm not even sure if there is muscle in that area? Any ways of checking through proding/poking to diagnose the problem? I know i should probably go see the doc but ive little faith there, my doc is one of those ones thats says "whatever your doing that hurts, dont do it" as if i hadn't already figured that part out for myself,lol.
