So after a week of not running (life, general couldn't be bothered gremlins...oh and getting my motorbike license, yay!), I gave myself a good talking to and ran yesterday and boy did I find it tough. I'm not sure if it was just having the week off or whether it was a state of mind but I struggled more than normal. Thankfully I managed to complete it without stopping but it was hard work.
I'm finding I keep getting a weird niggle in my right foot - not just when I'm running, the other day it was when I stood up to get a cup of tea. It's around the inner arch part of my right foot and feels like something pulling really tight which can make it really difficult to walk / run. It's been fine for a few days but I noticed it go again part way through my run yesterday. I've no idea what it is or how to stretch it out - the only way I can describe it would be to say it feels like my achilles is too tight but I don't think it runs down that part of the body - it's from near my inner ankle bone through to just under the arch - very odd.
