The website we saw the suggestion at said can of beans. Since we had a can of beans that's what we used. We actually called a kid in the middle of a run and had them put them in the freezer. They worried about the type--so we have refried beans, black beans and kidney beans. I know a can of soda will burst---I don't know about campbells soup or tomatoes. Thats what you risk---the water expanding when it freezes and the can bursting.

LOVE the frozen can idea. I'd never have thought to freeze a can and yet I'm constantly worried that I'm going to crack my plastic water bottle.

Ok, now I'm going to prove how tired and out of it I am - does it matter what type of canned good you freeze? Is there a reason you froze canned beans vs tomatoes or corn or that weird flavored Campbell's soup that's been in the pantry for 8 years?

A frozen can of beans is good for icing the soles of you feet. Metal cans transfer heat better than plastic bottles of water. Both my dh and I have a set of bean in the freezer. My kids keep checking that I'm not planning on cooking with them.

Thanks for the replies, guys! I'm very relieved that the achyness went away the next day. It felt like if you've been on your feet all day, so it was painful for me to walk after the run, but the next day it was feeling much better.

I've actually already been rolling a golf ball under my feet because I had plantar fascitis a few years ago. I use the golf ball about once a day or once every two days. Maybe I should do it more often?

I second the use of a ball to stretch the soles of the feet. I use a peewee baseball, which is the size of a tennis ball, but harder (I found it at Academy.) I start with it under my heel, and move around to find the sore spots. Then put as much of my weight on it as I can bear. (The same methodology as using a foam roller on legs.)

Then I move it to just in front of the heel. Then to the arch. Then to the ball of the foot. Basically I just look for all the tight spots on the foot.

This has really worked for me. Not only does it make my feet feel better after a run, I'm finding that I can run longer now before I get sore feet.

I'm going to try that too! Saturday was my longest run at 11 miles and now I have a blister on my left foot and my toenail on my left foot is turning purple (I already have a purple toenail on my right!). I don't get the toenail thing because I have plenty of room in my shoes and only 170 miles on my shoes.

Personally, I'd treat your feet as though you have plantar fasciitis simply because the treatment is simple and feels good on tired feet. Basically all you do is get a tennis ball or a specialty roller ball (they are a little firmer and work better for those of us that still have a few pounds to loose,) set the ball on the floor and roll your foot back and forth over the ball. A frozen water/soda bottle works great too. Massage your feet and ice them.

Good luck with your race.

Did you run on concrete any for your run? That can contribute to sore feet even with good shoes.

I'm in the same boat as you. I find that the bottoms of my feet are often sore at the end of a half marathon, and they were again after my 15 miler yesterday. I think if they are ok the next day, you're probably fine -- this is normal after the pounding that they've taken -- but be careful if you have pain when you first get out of bed -- which could be the beginnings of plantar facitis (sp?).

Wag more, bark less.

Hi everybody! I'm training for my first marathon and ran 17 miles on Saturday (woohoo!). But after my run, my feet were really sore. Not any kind of sharp pain, but that intense aching like you've been standing on your feet all day.

My feet are feeling better today, but I wondered if there's anything I can do about the aching. My shoes are new but broken in, and in fact I ran 15 miles in them 2 weeks ago and didn't have a problem with sore feet after that 15 mile run.

Is it possible to "condition" your feet for long runs so they won't be so painful afterward?

Thanks for any advice and tips you can give me!
