Not been able to run now for over 5 weeks due to pain in one of my feet. It started during a run 5 weeks ago when the 2nd toe on my right foot started to hurt. It soon ramped up to excruciating and I thought I must have broken it! Anyway, to cut a long story short, I've been to the doctor and consulted a podiatrist. He says I have Capsulitis and has made me some temporary insoles to try in my trainers. He said to wear my trainers all the time to get the benefit and to ease back into running with 30 minute sessions of 3 mins walk/ 1 min slow run every other day. I've tried this but it's still pretty painful. It's getting me down now as I can't see any end in sight yet and all my running fitness is ebbing away😞 (I was up to comfortably running for 8 miles).
Has anyone else had this and got any advice or cheery words? Thanks x
