Quick question:

I am still not right. My first race is Sunday and I still can't walk properly on my left foot, let alone run on it. It is getting better but I don't think fast enough for the race.

So, is there any benefit in spending money we don't really have on a specialist confirming I can't run or would they be able todo something to help?

Also who do I need to see? I have this afternoon free if is is worth it.

"Listen to your foot" ( by Roxette ). There is no reason in participating and not be able to run afterwards for several weeks. If you´re unsure on saturday have a look for another race in 2 or 3 weeks. Try to be on the safe side, you´re not earning money with running, are you?

I agree with Kraut - I know it will be a huge disappointment to miss the race - but there will be loads of other opportunities to run again in the future. It's not woth risking a long lay off.

In my heart I know you are right. I guess I was hoping someone would say go and see so and so and they will fix it up.

Next one is 24th in Torquay so not too long

But that might not address the unserlying cause - a decent sports physio will probably set you back £30-40 per session but I agree if you can't walk you shouldn't really run the race on Sunday.
Contact your local running shop or club to see who they recommend.
