Having had to pull out of last year's Edale Skyline through injury, I am now having to contemplate the same frustrating scenario this year. On a recce of the Skyline a couple of weeks ago I felt some discomfort in my big toe area. I have been able to run pretty well since, until yesterday when out for a short sharp 4 miler I had to pull up after a mile unable to put my foot on the floor. The discomfort is in my big toe and joint behind it. It is really painful when putting weight on it and when squeezing my foot, but not when when I wiggle my toes or to the touch. With a week to go before Skyline does anyone have any suggestions or similar experiences?
