So ever since the Nike half I've been having tenderness on the top of my right foot, the outer part. Looking at pictures of foot anatomy it's either one of the tendons on top of my foot or one of the metatarsal bones. God I hope I didn't do something serious. I can walk fine but the tenderness is always there. I think I better not run for a while until it goes away. In the meantime, I plan on resuming strength training and stretching. I can really feel that my muscles are tight and I know that can lead to injury.
I'm eyeing another half in March. Early bird registration ends 10/31 but I'm not ready to commit just yet. I know that the coming wet weather will affect how much I run and I don't know that I want to commit to training in cold wet weather.
The good news is that a local running store is going to announce training groups starting in January. That might be a better time to reassess how badly I want to run this particular half. Regardless of what I decide to do I really would like to run with a group because I think it will help to make me faster. Hopefully by then whatever is going on with my foot will be history.
