This week I have been forced to, well chosen to make an alteration to my marathon training due my foot not wanting to play the game. After my run last Sunday I spent the day with my family at the beach, the weather was perfect spring time weather and I spent a few hours playing in the water with my son. Hard to believe you can get injured playing with you family at the beach, but I think I did.
I’ve no idea what happened but by Monday there was pain in the top of my left foot. I didn’t think much of it and thought it would go away, on Tuesday I went for my run and the pain became a little worse afterwards and through the day. It’s not an excruciating pain and won’t stop me running but its enough to make me think I should stop running for a day or two. I decided not to do my aerobic run yesterday with every intention of running this morning when I woke up except the pain is still there and it’s raining. So I didn’t run.
I’ve made the choice to take a couple days off and start my taper early. It certainly won’t stop me running my marathon in less than a fortnights time and I don’t believe the time off running this week will have any effect on my race performance. Just annoying enough to keep me sidelined for a little bit.
