I have a similar problem my second toe on the left foot has swollen up for no reason and there is pain in the ball of the foot aswell also shooting pain going up to the tips of the toes ,have been to the doctors and had a xray showing that there is no fractures, gout also been ruled as was arthritis so all he said was to rest it so I took a executive decision and took the week of work and the possibilty of the following week as well with the help of a doctors note. I have pulled out of two H/Marathons so far and probably wont be doing the Snowdonia Marathon either but hope to train again in time for the Newent 9km in November.
Hi Dave I am in the same boat I have lost my results for 1997 and not quite sure who the main sponsors were think it may be either Bupa or Virgin all I can remember is that Alan Shearer started the race off 1997 the year he broke his leg. If you have managed to find the results perhaps you can contact me. Thanks
I have had what I fought was Piriformis for what seems eternity now and getting very frustrated as it doesn't want to go but went to a physio and she says although there's pain coming from the piriformis its my spine especially the left hand side of it that's coursing it via nerve endings also it feels like sciatica running from the piriformis down to the heel but I feel nothing from my back whats so ever, I have been doing the usual exercises to help things along but it not getting any better in-fact its got worse I find it hard to get out of the bed in the morning also I have a running machine but only manage 20mins after that my leg feels like dropping off.
Just brilliant I finished this race slightly over the time that I was aiming for by 10 mins but put it down to the heat it was just to bloody hot. Lovely course taken in the best of the Pembrokeshire country side thats on offer I carried plenty of fluid around me and there was plenty on route aswell infact every 3 miles also the residents that lived on the route kindly got there garden sprinklers out which was very refreshing and appreciated by all. Will be back next year hoping to beat my time but hoping that it wont be as hot. A big thank you to all the organizers of the weekends events it was just brilliant. Well done.
