Hi, I've just started to increase my weekly mileage & am building up my long runs from this week ready for a summer marathon. About 7-8 miles in to a run the balls of my feet hurt (the pad of flesh behind the big toe) It's like a burning sensation, not really a blister. I find it hard to focus on the run as the remaining miles are quite painful.
Are there any ways to overcome this? I wear cushioned insoles, wear the double thickness socks (bought from Start fitness). I dont really do anything in terms of moisturising/hardening my feet as I'm not sure which option is best.
Is there any thing else I can try? (will try it out on my 13 mile run this Friday) Thanks
