Intense pain in foot after 4-mile run??
I'm really not sure where to post this one, so I figured I'd just throw it in here.
Saturday I ran a 4-mile race with zero preparation. It literally almost doubles the amount I've jogged this year. I have good running shoes I got from a running store about 3 years ago and have had no problems whatsoever with them. I've also never ran over a mile or two at a time. This time as I was running my left foot started to get that tingly numbing feeling around halfway through; like when you lay on your arm wrong or something. For the last half mile my leg was numb from about the calf down.
The last two days I've had near excrutiating pain in my foot. I thought I had a broken bone, actually, but it feels to be more in the flesh of the foot, on the outer edge about halfway between my toes and my heel. Has anyone ever had or heard of anything like this? My right foot feels perfectly normal.
I just thought it weird for this to all of a sudden come up, and was hoping there was some sort of explanation. Shoes tied to tight or something.
Well sorry for the vagueness, but I appreciate any input you can give.
