Coach Nancy is quite right - take some time off, rest your foot and give it a chance to heal. In the meantime, a visit to a sports chiro is certainly a good idea.
I have an old niggling foot injury that flares up every now and then when I over do things and don't take enough rest days.
I learnt the hard way in that I foolishly tried to ignore the pain and continued to run through it,not just when it happened but also in the following days.
The most recent time this happened was October last year, and I even went to the extreme of strapping my foot and also wearing two support bandages, just so I could continue running - but of course that was totally the wrong thing to do.
As a consequence, I was agony just trying to walk and get about on a day to day basis for over two weeks, and I made a pact with myself that I would not try and work through the pain ever again.
I am training for my first race this coming June and the last thing I want is to have to drop out through injury.
And again, as Nancy said, please don't try and change your running style in order to run through the pain as this just sets you up for further problems down the line.
Good luck in your recovery - remember, you only have one body so make sure you nurture it and it will thank you for it in the long run!
Please read my ticker backwards as I am trying to gain weight.
