So after reading about vibram KSOs i started running differently and after about three 4km runs with my different running style i bought a pair. The first run felt amazing except for the fact that near the end i started to feel a pain at the base of my right second toe. I thought nothing of it, just the pains of getting used to a drastically different running shoe. But after a week on my second time out at the same distance the pain reappeared about halfway through. I managed to finish my route but the pain was about a seven out of ten. its winter so the route i run on is ashphalt with snow caked on it for the most part.
The pain pretty much completely goes away when i stop running and i can walk just fine but when i stand on my fore foot i feel some tenderness right at the base of that second toe. I dont have morton's toe and my feet are otherwise healthy but my question is: could this be a case of too much too fast and it will just take some more getting used to or does this sound like a problem that might seem like the end of my short virbam career?
any advice or stretching tips?
really love these shoes and dont want to have to go back to my comparitively clunky running shoes.
