I took part in a trail race at the weekend and have since been experiencing pain on the left side of my left foot and underneath it feels like theres a knot right under my foot and its preventing me from laying my foot out flat and also walking. I have been to A&E and had an X-Ray and i was told that i couldnt exercise or run for a couple of weeks. I have been told to rest and elevate my foot where ever possible. This is quite annoying as iv come into the second week of my 16 week marathon training programme.... im not new to running, iv been doing it for over a year now and have done lots of events, but im worried how this might affect my performance in training and if it will cost me time on the day of the marathon.
If anyone has any kind of experience with this type of injury id be grateful to know the sort of recovery time i should expect and if theres anything i can do in the mean time to keep fitness levels up. Otherwise just any advice would be helpful as this is starting to get to me....just 2 days out of training and im already getting annoyed at the fact that i cant go out and run!
