I wonder if anyone can shed any light on this.....
Did the Calderdale on Saturday, feet felt fine whilst I was running. However, next day, the top of my foot, approx.1-2 inches below my ankle joint, felt really bruised and I couldn't stand any pressure from the laces on my trainers.
Let it rest for a couple of days and it certainly started to get better.
Went out last night for a run and for 6 miles it was fine, no pain at all. Then it suddenly started to hurt in exactly the same spot. I had to keep stopping and adjusting my shoes, and managed to limp back.
This morning, it feels really bruised again, very tender. But there are NO visible signs of bruising??? Perhaps a slight swelling compared to the other foot but nothing much.
NOTE - my laces were definitely NOT too tight, although that is where the pain seems to be. I don't THINK it's the metatarsal, it feels slightly higher than that.
Any thoughts appreciated.
