In the run up to Reading Half Marathon I started getting pain around the ball of my foot. This has continued since the race and I'm now training for another next month and am worried about aggravating it more with the added speed work.
The pain occurs around the ball of the foot and is painful when I press on the inside of my foot at the rear of the ball. No major pain if I press on the top or bottom of the ball. The pain occurred on both feet at almost exactly the same time.
It eases with rest and I don't really notice it while running, but after a run it becomes painful and activities like using the big toe to push a shoe off are quite painful. I can feel a slight pain while standing on tip-toes or when walking fast, but this often passes quite quickly.
