I was on a call with a marathoner who had a cuboid fracture.
He was getting better, and he was trying to figure out how he could start running.
The cuboid bone is an irregular bone at the base of the metatarsals, and it’s sandwiched in between the fourth and fifth metatarsal bones and the heel bone. It is a bad bone to break. So he had a valid question:

Today’s episode comes from a recent group coaching call for recovering runners. All of the runners on these calls have been injured and they’re getting back to running, and today’s call will help you understand several things.
Even if you don’t have cuboid pain, even if you didn’t have flatfoot surgery, this will help you think about your pain differently and help you look for opportunities to maintain your running-specific strength as you continue to recover from your overtraining injury.
Today on the Doc On The Run Podcast, we’re talking about cuboid pain with running after flatfoot surgery.
