I know what I did was kind of silly, but I did three sets of single leg tippy toes to failure and now, 3 days after the workout, I can't really stand on my left foot or walk properly. I experience a lot of pain whenever I try to put my heels down. The only way I can walk is tiptoeing. Did I hurt myself, or is it just delayed onset muscle soreness?

I guess you just put too much pressure on your foot.. So take rest! Am not a physio sorry I am wrong but that's my point of view.. Anyways whenever you do workouts just take it slow first and gradually increase your level step by step..Good luck!!! :)

Sounds like you stressed the muscle that runs along and under tge arch if the foot. (When doing exercises that require you to ride up onto your "tippy toes" isnt that good of a movement as its stressing the toes and ligaments under the foot"

If youre talking about calf raises, ive never had pain like that before and ride up on my toes.
