AM - Core/plyos workout for 45 mins - then started to run with Delaney, but noticed some more serious feeling discomfort on top of my left foot (which I first noticed beginning on Monday) - so after a couple of mins I decided to stop and turn back - fearing a recurrence of a stress fracture I had a couple of years ago.  I recall reading where college trainers will advise a player/athlete to sit out of training for a week or two if they begin having pain on the top their feet, better to allow the foot a rest for a short time than to aggravate and cause a fracture resulting in a prolonged recovery.   I am completely weight bearing with no other symptoms so I think I will give it a day or two before I test it again.  Noticed some discomfort in the foot about a month or so ago, and it subsided after about a week of easy running in proper running shoes.   Optimistic that I may have the same results again (noting that I put some more significant mileage in this week than a month ago).
