I had to cut my run short today. I have a sharp pain in the bottom of my right foot that is causing some concern. The same thing happened after Ogden (except for it was the left foot). I was out for two weeks because I kept running on it. I learned my lesson because that injury wasted time when it didn't have to (I wasn't patient).

I can't afford to be out with an injury at this point, so I am just going to take it slow to get back into full training. I thought this problem may be my shoes, so I invested in a new pair, which didn't seem to help. When this happened to my left foot, I thought it might be Plantar Fasciitis. But it doesn't hurt to press on it and the pain is hardly there when I am walking. It is only when I get into a full running stride that is begins to scream. This same problem on my left foot was cured simply through rest and a lot of icing sessions. I am icing my right foot now, and will continue to do so throughout the week.

I think I may turn this week into a cross training week. TOU is on Setpember 20, and it is really important that I get back into my training cycle as soon as possible. We'll see how it is feeling tomorrow. Arg!

I would get a hard ball or soup can and roll the bottom of your foot out. It will hurt and might make it hurt worse the nest day but it will help in the long run:) Keep up the icing as well.

thanks for the advice, josse. i have been biking like mad this week to keep my fitness level up, and my foot seems to be feeling better each day. i will try the soup can method and hopefully i will be back on the roads (on my feet, not my bike) by saturday.

Sorry you are having pain. Its much better to take a little time off from running now instead of alot later. I would also suggest pool running. I hope you've been able to get in your cross training each day.
