Pins and Needles
I have been training for the last 6 months now and am running on average 30km per week. Last Sunday I ran an 8km in 47 minutes (I'm 41) and have been experiencing pins and needles in my left foot ever since (it has been 5 days now).

What is wrong with my foot?
Thanks for your question about pins and needles.
Pins and needles are usually caused due to less than normal blood circulation. Given you have experienced it continuously for the last five days it would not be one of the "normal reasons" like your shoes being too tight, or something like that.
What may be happening is that you have a trapped nerve. You could get a massage to loosen everything up and get the blood circulation going again.
If this does not help, I would strongly recommend going to a specialist, like a podiatrist. It is probably something harmless, but you don't want to walking around with pins and needles continuously.
