Noticed a bit of mild discomfort on the tops of both feet during a long offroad run four days ago. Mostly when running downhill, and just underneath where the bow in my laces was tied. Loosened off my laces a bit and carried on, and it felt okay.
Couple more runs, trail and tarmac, no real bother. Mild discomfort and I assumed I'd just tied my laces too tight, and slackened them off mid-run.
Till last night when I was road running and I had to loosen off my left lace three times during the run. Once loosened right off I could run no problem. When I got home and had a closer look, I found quite a lump (I think) on the tendon that attaches to my big toe. Round about where the top of my laces sit, toward the inside of my foot.
Does anyone have any ideas what this is and how to deal with it? Its not sore in the slightest to walk around barefoot or in slip-on shoes, but laces are painful. I'll be calling my physio first thing tomorrow, but just wondering if anyone could help before then...
Shoes and socks are same ones I've been wearing for a while. Brooks/Asics neutral cushioned for road, Adidas Kanadia for offroad. Weekly mileage is roughly 45-50-60-35 on a gradually building 4 week cycle.
