On Monday I met a friend who is a personal trainer for a short run. Mid run around the 2km mark my right foot started hurting, along the outside edge near the arch. I was running faster than normal and took a minute per km off my normal speed.
There is no swelling of bruising. Been resting since but I have a 5km run on 12th May including obstacles. The pain is easing, so plan a short flat run around sport fields tomorrow.
I think it is a combination of running more often and further which caused it. I had just done my first 10km on Saturday.
Really annoyed it is now, but will see how tomorrow goes. Hoping that short runs for now then going to longer runs after the Gauntlet Games will be okay. I was thinking about working on speed anyway.
My question is, does anyone know a way of supporting the foot during the runs, especially the obstacle course. Would insoles help with extra padding?
Thanks in advance.
