Tempted to delay PRMC to sort feet out

Today at college i did around a 6 mile run in a group. Within 10 minutes i could feel my feet getting sore and its alway in the same area and it only happens when i do long road runs. Well, i didn't slow down i kept up with the group even though my foot was in pain till the end and needless to say my right foot was a mess. The skin had broke and it was bleeding and all sorts.

This happens a lot but never to this extent. Usually when i do my 4 mile road runs at home i start to feel it but it doesn't get that bad. I believe it's the way i run. My feet don't run straight but they turn outwards a bit thus putting more pressure on one area of the foot instead of evenly distributing it.

I'm thinking of seeing a foot specialist or a running specialist to see what i can do. For one i need some new trainers but even that won't solve my problem i don't think. It's alright getting these fancy running trainers but at the end of the day in the Marines i'm just *text deleted* have boots.

Do you think i should delay my PRMC until i sort out the problem or perhaps do the PRMC and delay starting RT providing i pass.

If you have to ask whether or not *text deleted* ready for PRMC, chances are you aren't. If I were you I would get the problem sorted before I went for PRMC because it would be expose early on. And if you passed, carrying an injury into RT is a recipe for failure

I'm not questioning my fitness though i feel i can pass PRMC. There isn't even any long runs really on it so my feet will hold up. But i'd certainly need the problem sorted before RT. Hmmm..

It's around HERE on both feet underneath the big toe. Kind of were my foot starts to arch. It's always worse on my right foot.

I got this, albeit not to the same extent, I thought it was down to one foot turning out more than the other like you, I just made sure I kept my foot pointing in...

Thats all you did? It feels unnatural running with my feet straight but perhaps i could get use to it.

I'm *text deleted* invest in a new pair of trainers and wait for this to heal up then go for a run and try it out maybe.

It's annoying because i haven't got long left till PRMC and i won't be able to run for a while now.
