Hi all, looking for some advice. I was a bit stupid and did a 9+ mile run after a two week holiday where "a big walk" was 4 miles. Did it end of the april in the floods on rocky ground and hurt my foot.
Continued and it got worse so went to the doc mid-May and was told it's either a stress fracture (4th metatarsal) or possibly some tendon problem. Either way 4-6 weeks to recover.
I had a 10k mid-June so did two weeks aqua work and then two weeks with cut mileage (~15 miles, normally 25-30) and survived it tho it ached. Ache got worse a few days later so took an entire month off, limiting walking to/from car...
Done four runs since, 3 days between each, 3.2-3.6 miles and today (ran yesterday early) it's aching quite a bit especially when I flex my toes like before.
Surely by now it should have healed though? Driving me nuts when I'm used to running 3-4 times a week and haven't been able to properly train since April.
Should I give up all hope of a mid-Oct half? Should I cancel tomorrow's 5:30am run? How long does it need?
