  • Marathon's and Half-Marathon's.

    Running is becoming a greater interest for me, however as of late in training up for a Marathon(Bataan Death March that's 5 month's out I've noticed that when I hit the 3 mile mark my right foot starts to fall asleep, as in it get's this no feeling sensation I'm not sure if it's lack of blood flow or not. My laces are pretty loose. The odd thing is that when I go for about another mile I notice that it goes away and I seem to get an extra burst of adrenaline that helps me keep going. Any thoughts?


    If anybody is interested they can look up the info here.

    I'm moving this thread over to this section on the advice of a couple of people.

    That used to happen to me in the army. My foot would slowly start to get numb and after a certain distance it felt as if I was running on a stump that was a long time ago and occasionally it will come back but nothing too bad. Mine was a pinched nerve according to the army PA.

    I read an article on this before and I believe how the laces are tied is the most contributing factor to having this sensation. Although yours seems to be different to mine as my sensation wouldn't go away until I stopped running.

    I ran a marathon last month and I had no problems with my feet, well at least not with numbness...

      Do you think you could perhaps find that Article again? I would be interested in seeing what they talk about, thanks for the advice.

        I can't find the specific article but there are a few good ones below. Most of the people who complain about numbness say it is their running shoe and/or incorrectly tied laces. Others say a pinched nerve and a few complain of compartment syndrome. Hopefully is is just your laces...
