One of the problems with running 155 miles, is that you can be injuring yourself without even knowing it because tired pain and injury pain become tough to distinguish. I think from miles 128-135 I put on a pair of shoes (Mizuno Nirvanas) that weren't supportive enough and started to collaspse my right arch and develop IT band problems. I had no recollection of pain in those areas from miles 135-155, but the next day when I woke up for the 2 mile parkinson's walk the IT bands started yelling a little more loudly. Tuesday I went for a 2 mile run and felt the right arch was pretty sore.
Looking at my left and right foot, I could tell that my right arch was a bit low. I've been doing some arch strengthening exercises and and it seems to be alright and just a little sore in supportive shoes (Asics foundation) but the left IT band still is angry. We'll give it a shot this Sunday in the Santa Monica Classic (10k).
I gotta admit though, I feel ready (muscularly) to run a marathon fast. I like the idea of pulling a David Goggins and running a 3:05 marathon a week after his first 100 mile.. but I have a feeling I could mess stuff up if it is in fact a partially collapsed arch. Going under 40 minutes this weekend in the 10k would be a pretty good accomplishment though.
