After that, my feet feel great whenever I'm in my running shoes*. But, whenever I take them off, my feet hate me and continue hurting on and off for a few days. Mainly when I wake up in the morning and am standing normally.
I would have just put my old insoles back in and gone on my merry way, but alas, I think I threw them away, because they are nowhere to be found.
Because I was jumping around like a loon the other week with all the church kids — and these are my only athletic shoes — I've been wearing them more regularly than I have since I finished the 5K and promptly never ran again. My feet hurt all the time.
Is there something I'm doing wrong?
*They're New Balance and they did say "Running Shoes" on the original insoles, so I know they should be fine for say, standing still and telling children what to do.
P.S. I'm not willing to buy specialty athletic or running shoes. I only go to the gym like once a month and that's pretty much the only time I wear them. I've also had New Balances in the past and never had any problems until I decided to pretend to be a runner.
