Hi all, I am finding that I get hot spots on the balls of my feet. I have very high arches and the ball of my foot is therefore rather pronounced. I have never had a blister on the sole of my foot so I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and found a way of dealing with it. Pain starts around 3.5 km or so. I should mention that I do much of my training on a treadmill (15 years of tennis hve done little for my knees).
The pain is tolerable but is noticeable enough to make we keep my maximum distance to 10 kms.
Do people think that the more varied terain of the real world might help, should I use ultraglide or something similar, I already use a footbed and I supernate a bit.
Any help you can give would be appreciated.
I think I will try the vaseline lisa. I imagine it be an interesting feeling. I don't think I will go with the pads though been as I think adding bulk under the foot will make things worse. On the other hand if the vaseline is not successful I will have another look. I would like to build up to 1/2 marathon distance over the next 12 months and at the moment I think this foot soreness is holding me back as mutch as any other factor.
Thanks for the replies both of you though.
