Tim - really feel for you. Take it a day at a time. I know it feels like forever but it really isn't. I totally get what you mean about imagining the pain is worse once you start thinking about it. Gotta try and distract yourself.
You'll get over this for sure but it may need a few days. Hang in there.
Angela - very interesting on the shoes! How many miles did you do in the old ones?
Mine have 370 miles in them and I was wondering if I should change.
chickadeee - ice I'm sure will make you run differently. Not surprised that you're a little sore.
Ruffles - good call on the massage!
reikirabbit - thanks! Yes, I have no doubt it was the full monty flu I had and not the wimpy version
I had my second run back yesterday - 4 miles at 8-8:40 pace.
I was hoping my foot issue would be gone after 3 weeks rest but I could feel my pos tib compensating. Foot doesn't hurt unless I really flex it up and outward. Then I feel pain on the top above the arch. Doesn't hurt while running though. Wonder if I strained the tendons and they are just taking a bugger long time to heal. That could be jamming up the foot and causing the compensation at the pos tib.
Then again, I could just be talking bollocks
