Just take it steady at first - your body will tell you when it's ready! Start with shorter distances, just enjoy being out there again and remember to refuel/hydrate properly to help support your immune system. Good luck!
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!
