I'm hoping for some advice…
A few days ago, out of nowhere, I developed a pain in the arch of my left foot when running. I wondered whether it was my shoes (which have done about 600 – 700 miles) but it faded when I stopped running so I forgot. I ran again a couple of days later and the pain returned (kind of like a dull ache this time).
When I ran today (about 12 miles) it became increasingly painful but only when I was on uneven or slippery ground. When I got onto road or flat surfaces the pain faded fairly quickly. By the end of the run it was aching and continued to do so for a few hours after.
Does this sound like plantar fasciitis or old shoes or something else?
Any tips for clearing this up quickly?
Hummm first thing I'd look at is trainers.
i started to notice that over 400 or so miles, my trainers still look fine, but I start getting lots of little niggles. New trainers and they disappear.
Doesn't sound like PF to me, as mine was always fine while running and most painful first thing in the morning. And I'd agree with Booktrunk about the shoes.
I agree. PF would get better with running and then feel much worse the following morning.
Thanks for the advice! ... I rested the foot yesterday and the pain had disappeared by this morning. I haven't run today and I've had no pain despite walking quite a bit... so it looks like it's time to try some new shoes! Thanks again!
