W2R2 Completed Painful Feet

Yesterday I finished my 2nd run of week 2. During the run and afterwards the heel and ball of my foot have been hurting quite badly. I have put this down to poor trainers so have been out and purchased a pair of New Balance 610's. Hopefully this will help. Tomorrow me and the wife will be in Manchester so I am planning to run around Bramhall Park.

Sounds like a wise decision with the new trainers. Be aware, though, that the pain can point to a medical condition (see here:

One lesson I have learnt the hard way (I'm currently sitting at home looking at the beautiful weather that begs me for a run) is that it's wise to listen to pain from your body. If something hurts, there's a good chance it's because it's bad.

Hope everything goes well in Manchester, and that the pain goes away soon.


Don't be afraid NOT to run tomorrow if the pain is still bad. Take another rest day if you need to
