if you have high arches, try lacing your shoes skipping every other hole. That made a world of difference for me.

I was bound to the elliptical during half my pregnancy and had the same problem. I used to do toe taps on the foot pedals to try to generate more circulation. It'd get me through it most times.

Coach Nancy,

Should have known you would steal my thunder. Great answer and great link. My advice exactly especially about the wider toe box in the shoe. I guess that's why you're the expert.

Yup! Loosening my laces helps a bit. I also try to switch to another machine if I'm doing more than 30 minutes.

Hi,

This is very common--experts believe this is due to the foot staying in one place/position. Below is a link to an article that will better explain this issue and measures you can take to resolve the problem.

Why does this happen to me? I've tried using my heels more to push down as move forward, I've also tried using the right fit shoe, but maybe it wasn't the right design shoe. I find that if I don't wiggle my toes every 5 minutes or so, the balls of my feet and toes go completely numb.

Does this happen to anyone else?
