I am new to running, and this is the first form of exercise I have done in nearly a year due to suffering a stress fracture in my left foot as a result of playing football. I have been doing short runs (20-30 mins) for around 6 weeks now. During some of my runs I was experiencing pain mainly on the outside of my right foot but also on the sole. I believed this was due to using an old pair of worn out running shoes. This led me to invest in a new pair of running shoes a couple of days ago. I followed advice and went to a specialised running shop in my area. Since purchasing new running shoes I have been experiencing similar pain, and after some research I believe I may have either plantar fasciitis or peroneal tendonitis.
The pain occurs only during running and after a few minutes rest the pain goes away. During several of the routes I run I go up and down several hills which I believe may also be a cause of the problem. After suffering a foot fracture before I do not believe that these symptoms point to that, however I could be wrong.
I was wondering whether anybody had suffered from something similar and what sort of treatment they used to cure the problem. After being away from exercise so long I am keen to ensure that I don't cause myself further injury.
Any help would be much appreciated
