So I've been wearing Vibrams on and off for a while now, but I've noticed that when walking, after about the 2nd or 3rd mile the bones in the ball of my foot start to ache. The pain is most like a bruise, so I'm wondering if I'm exerting too much force when stepping on that area. I've attached a couple diagrams to show where in the foot the pain is at:
The pain I'm feeling this morning, in particular, is right behind the second toe, at the bone joint there.
Did any of you feel that? Did it just go away with time, or is there something I need to change about my form when walking?
edit: I just saw the Morton's Toe thread below mine - I do have a very -slight- Morton's Toe, though not prominent. I suppose I could give that a try, thought I don't like the idea of adding more padding to my VFFs >.<
