Well Gloppy, I broke the third metatarsal in May, started running again July.
Ran most of the half yesterday and fractured the 4th metatarsal on the other foot yesterday. This break is more severe than the last and casted awaiting an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon next week.
This all started since I switched to forefoot running in Jan. It is supposed to be the most efficient natural form of running. I have decided not to wear a certain brand of shoe designed for forefoot running and will just stride the way my body decides.
I won't be able to run anything until May of next year, just not worth it.
I'm curious to know if anyone else out there has experienced a similar fate with forefoot striking?
