I went on my last long run yesterday morning before my 10K and 5K this weekend, and my half marathon next weekend. I had hoped to go 14, but just before mile 11, the bottom/outside of my left foot got really sore really quickly. I stopped and adjusted my heel lift thinking that it maybe just slid forward a bit. But when I started running again, the bottom of my foot started hurting pretty quickly again. I got back home after 12 miles and called it good.
It was really sore for the next few hours - to the point that I was limping. I massaged it, foam rolled it, and stretched my legs (because people on twitter [including Coach Jen] noted that it's all connected, and looser legs will help a sore foot). I iced it when I could throughout the day. It was sore the rest of the day, but it was OK.
This morning, I barely felt it while in bed, but now I'm really limping around the house. It hurts a LOT. I'm afraid it's not just a "tendon thing" and I maybe broke something in my foot...
