Burning soles?!

Burning soles?!

Does anybody get times when their soles feel like they're on fire when they're running? What's that about?!   Often not both of them, and often not all the time during the same run. I'm not doing anything differently... Laces aren't too tight, I don't think. Do people wear cooler socks in the summer? 

I'd like to think that "I'm on fire baby" with my running, but even I can't delude myself that much!

  • I alternate between "Karrimor Marathon 1 socks" which are ventilated and "Karrimor Duo 1" socks which are breathable and ventilated. For them from Sports Direct. 

    I never have an issue with burning soles so I recommend those ;-) 

  • Love the drawing!  :-)

    Could be socks or shoes too tight. I tend to wear my running shoes much loser than an ordinary shoe as my feet definitely swell when I run.

    Other than that.... don't know!

  • I found this out after a run on which my left show was on so tight I could barely flex my ankle leading me to plonk it down with a jolt with every stride! It was a sore run that day.  I now use the 5 minute walk to ensure my shoes are both at the correct looseness. 

  • I get hot heels, which I think is associated with plantar fasciitis. I ice them fairly frequently, take ibuprofen and stretch the plantar and my calf muscles out.

    Or maybe it's wooly socks?!

  • No idea.... great drawing though... maybe you really are "...on fire baby...:)

  • One of our London marathoners reported this last week, but she had just run a marathon!

  • I would suggest thinner socks, and cushioned shoes! Love the drawing!
