pain on top of the foot
Last month I ran a marathon and halfway round I developed a pain on top of my foot (felt like my laces were too tight although they weren't). 4 weeks later when I lift up my toes I get a numbing pain shoot up my foot . I am about to start training again for London so would like any advice.
I think most people will say you should get this sorted before building up the miles again. If 4 weeks of rest hasn't helped, I doubt increasing mileage will do much for it either. Bone things often seem to take about 6 - 8 weeks rest so if it is a metatarsal type thing you'd be best going now - otherwise you'll be back at square one rather than hanging on for another couple of weeks perhaps. Podiatrist might be best...
