I had a rest day yesterday and no pain on my run the day before but this morning I woke with an ache on the top of one foot- near the toes, just above what would be the knuckles if it was your hand.
Not bad or sharp just noticeable, walk is fine, pain mild. Went for a 6.5k run with no pain at all and noticed it again afterwards.
Google tells me tendinitis? But it sounds like that's mostly more on top of the arch of the foot?
I don't want to be stupid and run myself from a minor ache into an actual injury because if I have to stop running I'll be hard to live with!
-can I run if running doesn't hurt it?
-should I ice it? Or what?
-what caused it? My shoes don't rub and fit well, very comfortable. I always warm up with stretching and a walk. My calves are flexible (lots of yoga) and not weak I don't think. As I say this happened two days after my last run...
