Can anyone help me diagnose a foot pain? It doesn't seem to be covered in my running injuries book (which means it isn't plantar pain, anyway yay!)
My foot's hurting along the outside (little toe side) about halfway down the foot, along both the top/side and underneath. It hurts when I run/walk on it and came on during the last couple of miles of a relatively easy 5-miles. I run about 30 miles a week (up to 13-milers) and haven't increased mileage or done anthing new.
Ideas?! I'm training for a marathon and can't decide whether to lay off it for a bit or carry on and hope it goes away!!
Can't face giving my physio even *more* money just yet...!
Thanks - you're right, as soon as I have a day where I feel I can do a bit more (although the extent of this is something like being able to cook dinner!) then I'm completely wiped out again the next day.
I'm trying to just be accepting of the tact that it takes a while, but it's hard when all you can think about is getting better and getting back to normal!
I've been diagnosed with glandular fever (blood test has confirmed it) and am five weeks in and still feeling dreadful. Doctor has said at least another two weeks off work minimum and months until I feel properly 'well' again and am able to run.
I'm usually very active, running long distances, plus I do a lot of yoga. At the moment I can't do anything apart from sleep and sit around the house and I'm struggling to see an end to it.
Anyone else facing the same problem? Or has anyone any tips on how to get over it quicker?
