/ Running, footpain
They all loosly describe a pain in a particular area but rarely helps you identify exactly what the problem is. I'd recommend seeing a podiatrist if the problem doesn't go away or gets worse.
Do you run on the roads? I was finding that my feet were hurting so switched to offroad and now they are fine.
Is it this muscle you are describing?
Sounds like you might just have strained it a bit, and it might need some strengthening. Rest it, and start again when there's no pain.
Maybe shorten you distance a bit, and try some strengthening exercises like raising up on to your toes.
The plantar fascia supports the muscles in your foot. If the muscles are weak you will most likely over stretch it.
Do you feel rubbing between the metatarsals? Like standing on a stone. Could be metatarsalgia. This is usually caused by ill-fitting shoes.
