Training hard does a lot of things for you. You become faster, stronger and better fit overall. It can also provide injuries. I have had a lot of hard training this year and I might have caught an injury in an early enough stage to be fine. Sometime in the last week I have done something to my foot. I have had a good bit of pain right in the middle of my foot. The more I rest the better it is feeling. I plan to take the rest of this week off and maybe do some cardio at the gym instead. I still plan to run Saturday in the relay in Disney. I am hoping a solid week of no running on it will make the difference and I plan to take it easy on Saturday at the race.
I am not sure how it might impact the rest of my fall. At this point I still plan run the marathon in December. Again if you catch these things early enough it can certainly make recovery easier. I would rather try to run through it but I know better than that. Hopefully this time next week I will have a better idea of where I sit. But for now I will use the time to build strength and even let the muscles enjoy the recovery.
