The day after my last blog entry ("Today's 440 Yard Time Trial ") I was having a nice easy twilight run at Baylands Park in Sunnyvale, California. All seemed okay, although the run was a bit sluggish. I think my legs were still feeling the effects of the time trial. Also, I had gotten up very early to make a 5:20 A.M. flight.
When I got back to my hotel room my left foot was really hurting. I don't know exactly what happened and when, but I thought my foot be broken--perhaps a stress fracture.
I'm on the mend. In fact, the last two times I've run my foot was pain-free while running and it was only later in the day that I my had some minor foot pain. So I think it will be okay and probably wasn't broken. I suspect that the injury was a result of poor support in my running shoes since the only change I made was switching shoes.
The last month has not been productive running-wise. I've had to run less often, slower, and shorter. I feel like I've been set back at least a few months. Oh well, at least I'm still running and my foot is not broken.
