Week 8... Foot pain

After completing week 7 on Saturday with a pretty straightforward run, today I had to stop after 15 mins due to pain in my left foot. I didn't feel any ill effects after Saturday, but my foot started to hurt after a leisurely round of golf yesterday. I'm hoping its just a case of minor overuse, and will sort itself out quickly. Had ice on it since getting home from the gym.

When I first thought about starting this plan, I kept finding excuses to avoid the gym. Now I'm almost at the end, the thought of not being able to run on Wednesday is making me miserable!

You're almost at the end, you can do this! I wouldn't know for the foot pain, I'm not a doctor, but the first thing I thought of was about your shoes. Maybe they're worn or something like that and your foot feels that.

Keep on running!
