OK, so Monday I get this little pain in the arch of my foot while running. My initial reaction was I felt like I stepped in some mud or shit and it was stuck to the front part of my shoe. I checked and nothing. I even stopped and repositioned my inserts and re tied my shoes. Something I've never done in 3+ years of running. It felt better immediately, but still a little sore.<br><br>
Tuesday it was sore when I started, but felt better while I was running.<br><br>
Today, all I've done is walk, and it's a pretty decent dull pain but only when I walk. If I'm sitting, no pain at all.<br><br>
Any guesses?

My first guess would be PF as well. How does it feel first thing when you get out of bed in the morning? Is there more pain that goes away or reduces the more you walk? It might be a similar situation if you are sitting for a long time and then get up to walk--more pain at the start and then less the more you walk.<br><br>
Have you done anything out of the ordinary in your training that might be putting more stress on your feet, i.e. adding speedwork, running hills you are not used to or adding significant miles? How old are your shoes?

Thanks for the advice!<br><br>
I'm running more, but not more miles if that makes sense. I'm a run walker trying to increase the run portion of my intervals. I used to be 1/1 and now I'm doing 2/1 and then 3/1 and then repeating trying to work up to 3/1's or more. It's been a struggle so I would call it significant change if that makes sense.<br><br>
My shoes have probably 280 or so miles on them which is close to the end of their life for me. I weigh 230 so I don't get lots of miles out of shoes, plus this is the first run through with these shoes. I've used NB's before and these are Brooks Beast. I use inserts and I think those are definitely shot. Close to year on those.<br><br>
As far as when I got out of bed, I can say I felt it,but nothing much more than that.<br><br>
Yesterday I wore a pair of deck shoes, flat as flat can be... to the grocery store and it was progressively more painful as the experience wore on. Last night I put on a good pair of walking shoes that have good support and it was more than tolerable while spending a decent amount of time walking around a shopping center.

Out of curiousity, why the change in shoes? I am in NB 767s, and had previously been in Brooks Beasts. They did not work for me, although that doesn't necessarily mean they will not work for you.<br><br>
My issue with the Brooks (and Saucony Stabil, which I also tried) was that my feet would still pronate even with all of the extra arch support you get in a MC shoe, so I ended up with constant blisters on my arches. When my LRS guy looked at the wear pattern, he looked inside the shoe, and the arches (of the shoes) were shredded.

I loved my NB 856's. Man did I love 'em... but alas, they changed them and the fit wasn't the same. I guess twice now. I tried the new ones and they were marginal. I tried the 1223's and they were just OK. I have very wide feet and my size is 12 1/2 which means either a 13 or 14 since nobody makes a 13.5. In NB's, 13's worked OK, In the Brooks, I was in a 14 and it was a tad big.<br><br>
So really my experience with the Brooks is limited... I've never gone over 10 miles in them.<br><br>
I have to admit I'm strongly considering gong back and giving the NB's another chance.

Thanks for the link TJ!<br><br>
OK, no heel pain so far and as the run went on today, the pain lessened to almost nothing... like a soreness.<br><br>
Could the no heel pain be just because it just flared up?<br><br>
Anybody know if the pain from a stress fracture would decrease as you ran?

I don't know, but I really don't think you have one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Thanks again, everybody!<br><br>
Thanks, Meri. Strangely enough, I find that to be encouraging info.<br><br>
I'd rather have PF than a stress fracture.... I think...
