I have really cut back the running to try and get this foot pain and shin pain to go away. Increased icing them about 1000%. Of course being on my feet standing on cement floors for 10 hours at work isnt helping it. But it has been feeling better. I went and did my tough hill run according to my marathon training plan and the shin splint didnt hurt, a few noticable twinges. But nothing bad. My foot was a little worse. The top of the arch was noticable most of the time. Not debilatating or anything but it let me know it was there. I keep running on it long has it dont get worse. I think the cutback in miles the last couple weeks has helped in general.
But of course I did the 6 mile work out like Planed anyways. Lots of hills in this route. Its also part of the Mill Creek DisanceClassic Half Marathon I am running in this Sunday. I have been signed up for a while and I know this is a very tough half. Of my 10 half marathons I have run, the 3 worse times were at the Mill Creek half. Well If I can PR for the course im doing great. The plan says a 12 mile easy run for Sunday so Im doing a half instead. Makes sense to me.
