I am currently training for my 2nd 1/2 marathon and have developed a strange ache in my foot that I am unsure about.
3 weeks ago I went on a short 1 week vacation to Barcelona. That week was meant to be a week of less running (W9 in training) and we were so tired of walking and standing visitng new places (10+ hours a day that we ended up not running at all.
I did all the walking with my new pair of running shoes (Asics Gel Nimbus 13) thinking that it would be a great way to break them in...
Of course everyday by the end of the day our legas and feet ached but I thought it was normal because of all the walking.
However, once I got back home I went for a short run and felt an ache in the bottom of my foot located just a little in front of the heel and before the arch.
Looking at my foot I saw that it was alittle swollen.
Because I felt the pain when I walked especially after I was inactive for a while and as I tried a few steps I decided to back away from running....googled and came across "plantar fascitis" did ICE, used medicated patches, and have been getting regular massages....
2 weeks later I feel that the pain is better and foot is no longer swollen but it is still there and I am afraid to start running again and make it worse.
I have been biking a little instead but this not running is killing me and I am concerned that I won't make my 1/2 marathon on the 30.09.2012.
Any advice or recomendations?
