So I was expecting to have a good run yesterday. Walking around the house, my foot felt pretty good. All that changed as soon as I finished my warm-up and started trying to run. The pain was there and it only got worse with each step. Maybe I've just altered how I walk in daily life and that's why I thought things would be better.
9/14 run 25 mins continuous run in Brooks Green Silence
Now I'm second guessing myself, are the Brooks making things worse, or am I just past the point of no return with this foot injury? I felt like my gait and foot placement were all over the place. All I could think about was how much damage I was doing to my foot with each step. I finished the 25, but fully expected to see some swelling and hematoma when I removed my sock. Thankfully, neither was present. I was shocked at how painful a foot injury can be without any signs outside of a little swelling.
I need to rethink my training for this Mud Run. I have to heal this foot somehow and keep my running cardio up. I need to learn to treat running injuries with the same respect as other sports injuries.
