I've been running for awhile now and as i've moved up in fitness and gotten more endurance i've started to run for longer periods of time. I've come to the point where i can run for 2hrs straight. After a week of this though, the knuckle of both my big toe's is in great pain every time i try and run and now even when i walk. ive given up on running for the past week hoping it would heal itself but so far no luck. i'm going to one of those foot docters soon booked an appointment but i was wondering if anyone had any advice there willing to give.

Running long distances and pain in the foot(2 posts)
How did your Dr. Appointment go? Did you have it yet?
It's quite possible that you may have ramped up the mileage too quickly and suffered an injury... possibly a stress fracture or something else.
Usually the treatment is simple -- rest... and then return to activity slowly.
Hope everything worked out ok. Good luck!
