Subject: Shin pain and new running shoes
I'm still a noobie runner, having become an "adult-onset runner" at the age of 44. I took a Good Form Running class, and run right around 180 strides/minute. Things have been going well, and I'm registered for my first half-marathon in late April.

I recently replaced my Brooks Ghost 4 shoes with Brooks Ghost 5. Lately, my left shin has been hurting quite a bit after my long run (8 miles this morning). Today, I went back to my old shoes, and so far, no pain. Any thoughts as to why this might be?

I had a pair of Brooks Adrenaline that would give me terrible cramps in my calf. I would switch back to my old shoes and be fine. Thought it was really weird at the time to think that a shoe could case this but months later if I tried to wear those shoes I would cramp up. I have had a couple pair of differant shoes since with no problems. Could be that your shins do not like your new shoes?

I recently had/have this with trail shoes. I had never used trail shoes, but when I started using them I started getting both calve and foot cramps in both feet. It would last about 3 miles then go away. Used my non-trail shoes(same maker) for a few runs and the cramps went away. Wore the trail shoes, they came back. I finally have narrowed it down to I simply don't have the body weight to bend the rock plate while keeping my normal midfoot strike.

I finally accepted the trail shoes don't work for me.

I'm going to try alternating the shoes for a while, and see if I can't "break in" the newer ones.

So, since my beloved go-to shoe brand has changed its shoe, after reading the bruhaha about the minimalist shoe, I decided to give it a try. Now I have a foot issue with my arch area.

I got a new pair of the same size / brand of shoes and started running on them. On my left foot, the toe next to the big toe starts to get a little painful and goes numb after the first 1-3 miles.

I still have heel pain and shin pain, and now I've got a weird pain in the center of my foot. Do you think I should have an x-ray to make sure that I don't have a stress fracture in my foot?

Already a cyclist and not a bad swimmer, I figured all I had to do was build up to running a few miles and I’d be ready to go. The challenge invigorated me, and I ran out to buy new running shoes.

I started riding this spring with the Carnac shoes on Look pedals (with plenty of float). About five minutes into a ride I get sharp pain on the outer edge of my feet, just behind the pedal.
