Hi Emma. How is your foot now. I am having a similar issue. A couple of weeks ago, after running 13k my foot was in bad shape and hurting exactly where the peroneal tendon is supposed to be located. The pain went away in about 24 hours, so I thought it was okay. But this weekend during my long run, my foot started hurting again and I had to stop after 7k. This time the pain was worse than last time (i couldn't walk without limping that day and next) and now my foot is aching a bit but the acute pain is gone. I am running a 10k race at the end of November and was really keen to train properly for it to run it in a decent time. I should probably forget about my hopes for a PB, but do you think if I give it two weeks, I can get back to training again? What can I do in the meanwhile to make sure the injury does go away?
Any insights will be appreciated!
I just posted a new thread because i didnt find anything on tendonitis. But if got tibialis posterior tendonitis. I found that putting my leg in a cold bath (water that i left outside) seemed to help, but i also felt that doing it every day was probably bad for my health. Ive had 10 months off with no luck. Not sure what else has been useful. About to go back and talk to my physiotherapist again and see what he says. And try get some through the NHS as well because its free.
I heard somebody say acupuncture almost solved the problem after 4 sessions in 2 weeks. Thanks for the idea about deep massage therapy might start really massaging my leg
I just found a site "Athletes Treating Athletes" which has some really good advice and information on self-massage for this and other injuries. Started using their info yesterday and i think it's already helped.
