Injury Report: Extensor Muscle, OUCH!

Extensor Muscle, any of the muscles that increase the angle between members of a limb, as by straightening the elbow or knee or bending the wrist or spine backward. The movement is usually directed backward, with the notable exception of the knee joint. In humans, certain muscles of the hand and foot are named for this function. [source]

I think I’m injured. I don’t know how I get this. It just hurt yesterday and early this morning I’ve noticed that it turn in to red. One thing for sure, there’s a certain part in my foot that hurt a lot, not really but a bit. Plus I feel my bone screeching every time I stretch my right foot. I’m guessing that the extensor muscle of my foot took the beating. I’m worried about this. I hope this one don’t turn into bad condition. Worst case, it swells up. I hope someone has the time to read my blog and maybe you can help me or give me an advice. Any comments & suggestions are all welcome.

Anyway, if you can notice that there’s a small hump in my right foot, probably in the extensor area. Compare it on the left foot it’s all clear and flat. Plus it has now a reddish color around it. I don’t know if running barefoot has to do with it or with my wrong form of lunges workout (with weights) last Monday. When you press it it’s so hard and of course there is a discomfort along with it. But still I can walk, run and perform my training well. In fact I did run early this morning to train for upcoming MILO Marathon and everything is fine. I just don’t want this to be here while I’m training until MILO day. I’m worried (panikero) haha. I’m sorry I may not sound dude enough today L.

I hope someone can help me. I’ll wait for your comments. Thank you!
