I am making an assumption that this is normal, but I have recently increased my mileage from around 10/15 miles a week to 20ish. I have staggered the increase and am doing all of the right things (warm up, cool dow, strecthing, icing, hot and cold treatment at times), but I am finding that most of my foot aches (both of them in fact) after 5 or so miles and also when relaxing (after effect I guess).
It does not help that I am a reasonably flat footed (used to use orthotics but now have more supportive trainers).
I have to stress that they are aches and not what I would class as actual injuries as I can contniue to run. Is it fairly normal to feel the aches because of the increase? And does anyone have any suggestions how to manage it.
Might be worth adding that I am currently training for the Hadrians wall run in June.
