Foot pain while running
Sep 17, 2013 3:07am
Today when I was going on my run I did my five minute warmup walk then within two minutes of running my foot started feeling sore like it was cramping up to the point where I didn't feel like it was safe to finish my run. Any experience with this and advice or ideas of why this happened?

What kind of shoes did you have on?

I had the same problem..they are two main causes in fact,first is the shoes..it is always good to choose flexible one but with enough material to absorb shock..second is the way u run..u must care,about ur back posture,ur arms balancing the movement,and finally ur foot..if u need more info about postures when running just google it

Ive had that problem before sometimes you can pull the muscles along your foot its not a serious issue just let it rest a day or so

It could be one of two problems, either plantar fasciitis or a strain in your bottom ligament. Either way rest up from the running for a few days. I tore my plantar and was out if action for 16 weeks and now I wear orthotics. You usually get heel pain with plantar fasciitis though. See how you go after a few days rest if it doesn't help, then get some advice from a doc. You can also strap your foot with strapping tape, but it is hard to explain. Good luck.
