I screwed up

I got carried away and ran three days straight in my KSOs.  It just felt fun.  After the second day I started to feel some pain in the top of my left foot.  The third day I ignored it and went out again; that was a mistake.  Here I am three days later with a throbbing pain in the top of my left foot.  I keep telling myself that it is just an overuse injury, my feet weren't ready and I strained something.  A few more days and it will clear up nicely and I can get back on the roads.  Because it can't be anything serious, it just can't be.  I don't have the time or patience for a serious injury.  Therefore it has to be just a sprain or bruise or something.  So far though, it shows no sign of clearing.

This is just so frustrating because it is completely my own dumb fault.  It's one thing to slip on some ice or twist your ankle in a pothole but to just not pay attention to my own warning signs, that's just stupid.  So it looks like I have some unplanned forced downtime coming.  At least it will be raining for the next few days so that I don't feel too bad about it.


  1. The exact thing happened to me after a too-fast run in the KSOs. I also ignored the pain and did a planned long run a few days later, resulting in even more foot pain. At the time it hurt so bad that I really thought I must have broken a bone in my foot, but after two weeks of babying it, the pain just vanished. Go easy on it and I bet it will clear up pretty quick.

  2. Ohhhhh.... noo.....
    Okay. Stay calm. It could be just a bruise or a strain! Baby it like David said!

  3. Geez...Sorry to hear that. Hope it's better real soon. At least now you know.
