I need some input from anyone here. I started streaking at the first of this year; things have been going pretty well; actually I am surprised at the way things have went. I am not has beat down as I figured I would be. But, the last week I have really been having some soreness in my right heel. Seems like anytime I get an injury it is always something on my right side. This pain in my heel is one of those things that actually feels a little better after you get in 2 miles, and then does not feel to bad the rest of the run. Afterwards is when it gets pretty sore. I have also had this pain in the ball of the same foot for over 6 months now. It isn't anything that would prevent me from running, but I am worried that it may turn in to something worse.
Has anyone had anything like this and can comment I would appreciate it. I don't want to end my streak; but I also don't want to jepordize running has a whole either.
Can only suggest what I do with most injuries -
ICE a couple times a day
ibuprofen to release swelling a bit
REST - meaning if it is really bad, I take 3-4 days (have taken up to a week and a half) of one mile days
Best of luck
