"not just when doing Insanity"

When i developed Plantars, it was NOT because of the exercise I was doing or did. the exercise just made it hurt more. Again the doctor gave me stretches and exercises to do and of course told me the shoes i was wearing were not helping. SO i understand when you say your foot hurts all the time not just when exercising. I had to wear my gym shoes for weeks at work because flats had no support and heels made it hurt more. As i said, it took a good 12 weeks for it to heel to a point when I could actually exercise on it.
Now I continue to do the stretches and the golf ball thing.

Never, ever ignore pain in your body. It's a sign that something's wrong,and ignoring it can result in serious injury. It can take something that would have healed with a bit of time and rest and land you under the surgeon's knife.

Arch pain particularly is something you don't want to ignore. You could end up with Plantar fasciitis, a very painful injury that takes a long time to heal. Head to the doctor, and have them check it out. You may also not be wearing adequate shoes; what kind of shoes are you wearing, how old are they? What's good for walking may not be a good choice for Insanity-style workouts, which involve a lot of side-to-side motion and require different support.

I agree that talking to your doctor about your symptoms is your best bet. Then you know for sure whether you have a medical issue causing the problem, or if it's as something as simple as different shoes, etc.

I would get fitted for shoes for your activity. I bet that helps.

As I said above, this has always occurred - not just when doing Insanity.

You could be developing planters or some other muscle spasm. I started a high intensity regime as well and developed it. I went to a podiastrist and got a cortizone shot (which was so NOT worth the pain) and then he gave me stretches and exercises to do. The best one was rolling a golf ball under my infected foot for 10-15 minutes several times a day. The arch stretches helped too.

he also said the shoes I was wearing were not the right ones for the intense exercise I was doing. I went to a place that was able to fit me properly. The pain took about 8-10 weeks to go away, but I really watch my feet now.

However this was for me, you may want to check with your doctor to rule out anything else.

I have always had pain in my foot when I exercise. Normally I just ignore it, but I just started Insanity and it is really impeding my progress. Any suggestions on how to find out what it is or correct it?

It is usually in the middle of my foot - arch and across. I never get pain any other time - not when wearing the same shoes, walking for a while, etc. Just when exercising.

Any ideas?
