Bone Bruise Experiences?

Discussion in 'General Fitness' started by Jim Haselmaier, Oct 26, 2004.

  1. I ran a half marathon on Oct 3 and afterward developed a soreness in my
    foot. My podiatrist says it's a bone bruise where the 4th and 5th
    metatarsals meet the cuboid bone. (It turns out my shoes were much
    older than I thought.)

    I'm interested in any experiences people have with this kind of injury.
    How long did it take to heal? Did you run during the healing
    process or not?

    My doc suggested I cut my mileage in half while it's getting better. It
    doesn't hurt AT ALL when I run. Luckily it appears I can stay on the
    road while it heals. But I'd be interested in others' experiences.

    Thanks.

    Use your common sense, too.
    Take care of your body, do not abuse.
