Running and Foot Hurts
The top of my right foot on the outside area has been hurting mildly for about a week. I haven't been running any differently....been doing 1.5 miles of walk/run intervals at 5.5-6.0 speeds...and my shoes are good. This is on the treadmill. It started to hurt after a long bike ride last weekend, again an uneventful exercise.
It feels swollen and sore but doesn't look swollen and perhaps barely bruised. It hurts on the top right side of my right foot, just before my ankle. It doesn't bother me when I run, oddly enough, but then hurts all the rest of the time. Rest doesn't help and neither does Aleve. The puppy stepped on that area today and it REALLY hurt for that moment. I'm not sure what to make of it. And I'm not sure what caused it.
It doesnt' hurt to the extent that I'd see a doctor over it. I'm just interested in input, if anyone else has experienced this...What could it be? And what might help it?
