I've been lurking for a little while but I thought I'd actually post something! I don't run too much, probably about 10-15 miles a week. The vast majority of these miles are off road and I run in New Balance Minimus shoes. 2 months ago I did a fairly brisk 3 mile run on the road...this was a bit faster than normal as I was in a group and I was feeling a bit competitive. I felt fine (great!) whilst running, but the next day I tried to run again and I had a terrible pain in my foot. This pain is at the front of my foot, just behind where the toes join onto my foot. It feels like it's on the top of my foot. I didn't run again and it got better over the next week. However ever since then the pain has still been there. It hurts as I transfer the weight towards the front of my foot. I can cycle, walk and climb with no problems. It does ache a bit if I walk a long way, but nothing too bad. I tried to run for the first time since, last week. However it started hurting immediately so I stopped. I thought that if I didn't run it would heal itself but that doesn't seem to have happened. It's very frustrating!
Does anybody have any ideas as to what I could have done? It's the first time this has happened. I finally made a doctors appointment today but it's not until Wednesday next week. I'm supposed to be training for a marathon in October so getting it sorted as soon as possible would be great.
Thanks for any help!
