Did I mention that while I was resting my right ankle that the forefoot of my left foot started to hurt? I don’t know exactly how I injured it, but it was killing me. After a week I started to notice that the pain was originating from my second toe. My toe looks like there is a bump on the side near the big toe. So needless to say I will talk to the sports medicine doctor about his ailment too. Don’t worry, I consulted Dr. Google as well and I discovered that buddy taping, taping two neighboring toes together, can help with the pain and aid in healing. I have had a lot of luck with the buddy taping. Luckily the forefoot pain is completely gone and I don’t have pain in my toe unless it gets pushed backwards. I hope this is not worse than it seems. I already have enough to handle when it comes to my right ankle injury.
Are you staying injury free during marathon training?
