I need some help with a foot injury that I received a 8 days ago. I have an olym race in 6 days. I stepped on something and have a bruise on the ball of my foot between my big toe and my second toe. It doesnt hurt to walk but I tried to run 2 days ago and I had some pain after .25 miles.
Any strategies or words of wisdom on how to improve the injury? How much will my run suffer in the race if I havent ran in 2 weeks before the event? I have been making up for the lack of running with extra time in the other events.
