Foot Pain

My friend started running 6 weeks ago training for the RFL and for the first 3 weeks all was fine. Lately she has been having terrible pains across the front of her feet from the ankle to just above her toes. Last night she said she was in agony.

Does anyone have any idea of what this could be? She has been running 3 miles and some of this is off road through woods.

  • I have the same problem, pain in the middle of the top of my right foot spreading towards the ankle. Particularly worse after hill runs. Very fustrating as my fitness is good but this is really holding me back. Been given advice to
    Rest
    Ice
    Compress
    Elevate
    and while it's helping it's not solving the problem, it always comes back. Not to much of a problem when actually running, tends to kick in when I stop.

    Can anyone help??
  • get your shoes checked
  • Have done - been to a running shop, had feet checked out and advised on new shoes. No difference (except in all other ways the shoes are better!).
  • Took my friend to a shop specialising in running shoes and it appears to be her shoes that are the problem just as you have said Gobi. She has bought new shoes and we have to wait and see what happens. Her feet have been really sore. Finger crossed
