My son is a cross country runner that plans on continuing into college. We went to a store that specializes in running and they did an analysis of his feet and running style. They told us what to look for in shoes, etc. He bought a pair of shoes at the store and I think it will be well worth it. Until then I had only gotten him what we could afford on sale. One thing they told us was that the shoes they have are rated up to 500 miles. When I have the money I'm going to go in and have them do my feet. Up until then I will use what I learned from his experience.

I too, have been experiencing foot pain. I have been running in shoes that are terrible, but can't afford any others right now. I know, its my shoes.

Reading your response to "foot pain" was a plus for me. I had no idea about other options to shop for running shoes. Went to the usual suspects and spent $$$ for mine which I'm not really all that pleased with. Thanks for helping us all!!

Does it hurt even when you don't run? In that case, time to see a doc.

I would ice your foot, if you've had a previous injury in your foot it may have not healed as well. If you can still run on it, I'd say it's fine, however if you are limping I'd suggest you take about a week off. I had to do that during week 6. My foot is still sometimes sore, but it heals during the cross training days and I am able to run again every other day.

But yes, please ice and elevate. :-)

i would go to a running store(not a national sporting goods or shoe store) and have the sales people put you on treadmill and check running "style" and foot placement; then purchase a good pair of running shoes for your style and feet; i used my name brand sneakers for the first few weeks i ran, and had the same experience... after visiting a "running" store, i purchased a pair of good running shoes that matched my style of running and conformed to support feet. been pain free since then(i run at least 4 days each week anywhere from 2 to 6 miles per day either on a treadmill or on the road depending on weather)

I started the program on Monday and did not strictly follow it but did a 10 minute walk warm-up then a 4 minute walk with a 2 minute "jog." Both my speeds for my walk and jog were slow. I did not walk on Tuesday and used it as the suggested rest/cross train day. Yesterday before I even started on the treadmill I had a slight pain on the side of my foot. While on the treadmill it began to hurt more but I pushed through doing the same speeds that I did on Monday but cutting the walk time to 3 minutes instead of 4. After I was finished my foot pain was more intense and is very painful today.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or similar experiences. It is hard for me to believe since I did not run fast nor far that this was actually caused by the program.

What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?
