It's happened again. I signed up for the Hyannis Marathon and am all excited to get training for it but there is just one issue; my foot has been giving me a problem for a couple of weeks. The middle toe and ball of the foot under it have been experiencing pain, almost as if I had jammed it or stepped on something hard. I have no idea why it is doing this but running definitely makes it worse. So I took off three days over Christmas but that didn't fix it. I have now taken another four days off but it still feels off. I was supposed to do ten miles last Saturday and another 12 this weekend but my schedule is all thrown off now. I haven't even done ten miles total in the past week!
The plan now is to wait until Saturday or Sunday to start running again and see how it feels. A week should be plenty of rest time to for it to get better. At least that's what I keep telling my foot. Unfortunately it seems to have its own ideas. Happy freakin' New Year.
