Tricia: Sympathies. I feel for you - I'll be wishing I was running on Sunday as well. But since although my stress fracture is now pain-free I'm having other foot pain problems, I'm not even going to be completing a Parkrun this weekend, never mind a HM. Managed 2 x 10 mins this morning.... Got an initial physio appointment booked for next week, so maybe I'll know more after that.
im pretty sure it is planta fasciitis, caused mainly by hilly race
im going to take a month off from running after the marathon to let it heal
TH - how is your foot now? Did you get a firm diagnosis? Only wondering as the pain you had seemed to be in a similar place to where mine was.
My foot pain disappeared about 2 days after receiving thorough sports massage. Funny how a muscle problem in the leg was only generating pain in the arch / side of my foot! The marathon I was meant to be doing is this Sunday - feel mixed emotions - relief at having deferred my entry & disappointment to be missing out.
Hope your marathon goes well & have a lovely relaxing few weeks off after!
Let us know how you get on.
