Say a little prayer for my foot

I ran 12 on Sunday and started feeling this pulling feeling on the outside of my right foot.
(I need a new right leg – first the knee, then the shin and now the foot!)
Anyways, yesterday it felt bruised and tender. Last night at track practice I could feel it, but figured I need new shoes.
After track I went to the grocery store and noticed I was limping around and then I started getting shooting pains through the foot that would make my whole body cringe.
I took 2 Advil last night and iced it since it feels bruised.
Today it is still bothering me.
I can’t imagine it being overuse since my mileage is down from just a few months ago and I am only running outside twice a week now.
Ho hum. Will I ever work out with no pains?

Take care of it! Interesting plantar (which I have become pretty familiar with) can also exhibit on the outside of the foot. But be sure, and if it keeps bothering you, get it checked!

It could also be something called your peroneal tendon - which attaches to the outside of your foot. I wouldn't ignore it....
Take care of your tootsies!
