Why do my arches cramp when I workout?
I've been attending a workout class 3x/week for the last 2 years. When we do plyometrics, or certain balance exercises, the arches of my feet feel like they are cramping up (sometimes my calves too). I slow down and jog in place, or side step until the arch relaxes.
At first I thought I just needed to get stronger... but for gosh sakes- it's been 2 years now- and sometimes I think it's getting worse! I went to GoodFeet and got arch supports but that doesn't seem to help. I think my shoes are long enough. My feet are not flat. My knees are also sore. Help! what can I do? Do I need better arch support? Do I need to go to bare feet? This is impacting my workout.
