So I ran the Bay to Breakers yesterday which is about 7.5 miles. Let me say by no means am I a serious runner but I ran about 6.5 miles of the race. The shoes I was running in are slightly new and slightly broken in so I dont know if it was the cause or part of it but anyways I digress.
So about the last .5 mile I had foot pain on the outside of my left foot towards the heel but ran through it just figured I was tired. Finished and felt good (thats what she said) and as I'm walking around getting freebies from vendors I had a very sharp pain all of a sudden and was very difficult to walk on. Did the whole rest,ice blah blah blah when I got home and no real help, saw a chiropractor today about it he said it doesnt seem like a stress fracture or anything but I've never felt so much pain in my foot. I dread getting up and walking/limping to the bathroom so my question is has anyone dealt with this or are there any runners/doctors/EMT's/geniuses, etc. out there that have any suggestions or ideas as to what's going on.
