Pain in my… FOOT!.. Doctor update: Stress Fracture..
Update 9/27/13: I listed to the above advice and noticed the pain was worse today. I got an appointment in with a great doctor before the weekend and discovered I have a Mild Stress Fracture. My new kicks are temporarily replaced with a Boot on my right foot for the next 6-8 weeks. No more than 6 miles of running distance wise. Normally they tell you no running but she knows I want to stay active so they will re-xray me in two weeks to check the bone. What caused it? Various reasons: too tight of shoes, the fall I experienced last Sunday at mile 8 of 14 and pushing myself past the 10% rule. (Not to increase your distance more than 10% week to week)
sigh.. At least it happened early in my training.
Thoughts, advice? feedback?
This is my first major injury. Tell me stories about yours (if you have any)
Should I scale back my goal of my first Full? Is this a sign?
Since my long run Sunday I have been experiencing throbbing bursts of pain in the middle/bottom of one foot. From online research looks like could be that my running shoes too small. (Hmmm I had just heard that if you increase your mileage for Full training its best to go up a size in your running shoes). My current Asics running shoe was discontinued (Gel 1170) so I transitioned to the Asics GT1000. I had put 126 miles on them since mid-August. I don’t think its plantar fasciitis because the pain isn’t in the heel of my foot it is more in the middle. Do I call up a Sports Doctor to make an appointment or do I do a bit more online research? Of course the geek I am I do more online research.I posted this question on various FB group pages and got some great first hand…
