Hey guys. I have been meaning to look for a VFF forum and this one looks good.
I am a fairly new runner and I have been working up my distance slowly to avoid hurting myself. I have been wanting to run a 5k and just recently pushed myself that far and have started getting my time down with no problems other than the typical soreness in my calves and feet.
Here's the big BUT I went to a Fit Camp at my gym today for the first time and apparently this was the first time they had run this far but it was a total of 4 miles and along the way we would stop and do pushups and various exercises. I was keeping up with the group but it was definitely a good workout. About a half mile from the gym I started getting pain in my right foot in the ball behind the 3rd and 4th toes. I powered through for a couple of minutes but realized something was really wrong and stopped to a walk and limped my way back. I am really in a good bit of pain. I went to see a friend that is a nurse and she thinks I tore something but probably not a stress fracture and told me stay off of it for a week.
Has anybody else had injuries like this? I am really bummed about it and love my five fingers.
