so i did ironman 70.3 austin a few weeks ago. its a hilly course and in the last 2 miles of the run it felt like my foot was on fire. just the front portion where i land. now it feels like it might be bruised a little as there is still a bit of sensitivity there. also the inside arch is a bit sore and a friend of mine told me to foam roll the outside of my shin / calf muscle as that controls the inside of your foot. anybody know what might be going on. i have decided not to run this week in an attempt to give it a bit of a rest.
Im racing my first full ironman in may 2011. I am raising money for alzheimer's whilst im training for it. You can find out more in my blog on my Facebook page.
Here is my Alzheimer's donatation page.
I'm not a doc but the standard generic advice is take time off -which you are- and ice and take anti-inflamamtories. if it doesn't feel better go see a doc
goals for 2011:
break 19minutes for 5k
break 2:42 for olympic triathlon probably Anthracite olympic
break 3:16 for marathon ( a long shot but it's fun putting yourself out there)
