So the last time I blogged I had successfully finished W1R2 and was feeling really good about it so far.
It's all gone a bit downhill from there..
During that last run (about 2 weeks ago now) I noticed a slight pain in the top of my foot which I ignored at first, but as I walk a total of 3 miles a day to work and back you can imagine that it got worse fairly quickly. So I went to the doctors and he told me it was just a slightly sprained ligament and that I just needed to rest. Annoying to have to stop just before completing the first hurdle, but not the end of the world I guess.
So I got the bus to work and didn't run for a week and my foot seemed to improve. However, the annoying thing is that I just can't afford to get the bus to work and back every day as it's so expensive in Brighton. I started walking to work again yesterday and initially seemed ok, but a few hours into my day and I noticed that I now not only have a tightness in the top of my foot, but there is a dull pain all the way down the left side as well (all on my left foot, righty is fine!).
Don't know if I should just bite the bullet and get the bus? Or maybe just make sure I put it up when I get home? Don't really want to go to my doctor unless I have to because he's not very approachable.
Sorry for the long post, but I'm just trying not to get disheartened because I was really enjoying what I had done so far and I want to try and keep a bit of morale so I can get back out there asap!
