I finally got to the podiatrist at the end of last week. I had been having problems with the outside of my feet after my 48 Miles in 48 Hours run and near the end of my Seacoast Half Marathon run (though the pain had switched feet for some reason).
The good news is that nothing's broken/fractured, though I pretty much figured that out at this point. I don't have the pain when I run less than 10 miles, but it starts to hurt after that point, even after getting new sneakers. Apparently I have high arches and the makeup of my feet puts pressure on the outside of my feet. What may help: really expensive orthotics. I haven't decided if I'll go that route yet.
I've also been fighting off a bit of a head cold. Lots of people are much sicker (bronchitis is big around here) than me, so I'm not complaining too loud. In fact, I've remained relatively healthy throughout my time at law school. I credit my good diet and frequent physical activity to helping with that. This is really the first cold of any kind in law school, so I've been relatively lucky.
So while Sudafed and other drugs do help, I've found a sure fire way to solve a head cold. Run outside. It's amazing what 15 degree weather can do to clear your head out. As long as I'm outside in that weather, I feel great. I just need to figure out how to keep running continuously for the balance of the winter season.
Ah, running: it cure what ails you.
