Foot injury update 3

I ran!!!! It was only 3Km, and at a very easy pace, but I ran! I paid a great deal of attention to not stressing the tendon, and although I can feel a little tightness/tenderness, it didn't hurt, and it seems to have got through the run without any ill effects.

I plan to rest it now, perhaps go to the gym tomorrow, and if it looks ok, I'll do Parkrun on Saturday. The club usually organises a longish run on Sunday mornings, so I might also tag along with that.

QE Olympic Park 10K in 10 days! I suspect that will be a matter of enjoying the occasion rather than going for a PB.

  • Hang on a minute, are you really going to do a gym session on Friday, a Parkrun on Saturday and a longish run on Sunday when you're recovering from injury?? That sounds like an awful lot of work for that foot in a very short space of time. You're not going to lose your ability to run 10k overnight, so relax and don't try to do too much too soon. :)

  • I suppose that does sound a bit OTT! The gym work I've been doing doesn't impact my feet much (spinning & cross trainer) though I do feel it in my legs.

    I'll see how Parkrun goes before deciding about Sunday, but whatever happens, I'll be sensible.

  • So glad you're back on you're feet :-P it does sound like you wanna jump straight back in, but that might put you out for longer in the long term. If it were me, I'd probably take it easy to make sure I could do the 10k but I am now very cautious about injuries, maybe overly so :-)

  • I wouldn't do Parkrun if you're still injured. I'd save it for race day. Give yourself a bit longer to heal

  • Glad you're on the mend, but do take it easy - you want to continue healing too!
