Sore feet

I'm too old to go running as much as I have been. I've been running 3-4 days a week for about 15-20 minutes, and my feet are sore. The sore legs have gone, but my feet are killing me.

It's harder to get out of the office and go to the pool. To go swimming, it takes at least 90 minutes from the middle of the day whereas I can go for a run by only adding about 30 minutes to my morning before the kids wake up. Sigh.

Maybe I should get new running shoes, but these are fairly new with very low mileage on them. I'm sure if I lost some weight it would help (it always helps my plantar facsitis when I lose weight), but it'd be easier if I could run without my feet hurting for the next 2 days.

It's always the chicken or the egg problem. I'd have more energy if I worked out, but it'd be easier to make time to work out if I had more energy.

I know that feeling. I walk everyday, but my knees and feet still hurt a lot of the time. It does get better though,and you get used to the routine which helps a lot!

You might want to look into new shoes, though. Did you get them especially for running and do they suit your feet and running style?

Hang in there - it will get better!
