"Wow that's amazing! So far I've been doing them maybe a little less than a month, for 3 times a week on the days that I do a little bit of running. My feet & legs always feel kind of tight & really tired after it so I don't…"

"Wow I just looked at that, very helpful, thank you! I forgot to mention I'm extremely flat-footed, so if I try a shoe with any form of arch it's almost always uncomfortable. Somebody told me the foot strengthening exercises should help…"

"Running stores near me don't seem to carry anything like these. My favorite store stopped carrying the Altras 5 years ago because of lack of sales, go figure, but they said they'd have the newer models in soon, not til around June :(…"

"Wow I didn't know the arch could collapse like that, sounds like a painful injury! I'm definitely really trying to hold back & build up my miles slower. Thanks again for the helpful advice!"

"Thanks so much for responding! I'll look into those Altras & go from there. Long story short, I started a few years ago walking my first official 5k race (I did it with a friend who doesn't like to run) & that wasn't…"
