My long runs are not very long these days, but I am trying to ramp up the mileage to begin my marathon training next week! I am still having some pain in my left arch, but taking off 3 days before running on Saturday was a great idea. Since the pain goes away with rest I am hopeful it is not a bad as it could be. I was still able to put in a few good miles of hills at an EZ pace without any pain.
After finishing up the run I could tell the foot pain was going to set in again. I am thinking it might actually be the sandals I wear after running. I'm not even sure if that is a possibility but it seems like a good alternative to simply having pain from running. I am going to change up the post-run footwear to see if that will help. I am also heading to buy some new shoes to see if that will do the trick.
Route: Perimeter Area
Distance: 9.5 miles
