    Hi all. I found out today I have a deformed 1st Metatarsal with almost insignificant to mention spurring.

    I have been following the plan which is mostly 7 days a week with a day off sometimes. I purchase this plan prior to getting the yearly 80/20
    Endurance training peaks subscription.

    I am doing the half marathon level 2 I believe and my event is in Ottawa next month. Is there anything I can do to modify my workouts?

    I am going to see my podiatrist next month. Maybe too late for my event. They can modify my orthotics to add support to that toe. Can I use toe separators? Ones o see on amazon?

    Hey Jeff,
    Are you having pain with your running? Definitley follow the advice of your podiatrist in terms of red flags to look out for and how to not make things worse or cause further issues. Any other crossing training can be great to replace runs if needed. Stationary bike, swimming – elliptical is also a very good run replacement when wanting to reduce impact/load on your foot while still keeping your fitness up.
