I've hesitated to mention this before just because I thought it would just go away as I get stronger or gain a little fitness. Since I started back running about 8 weeks ago, my left foot has become numb after about 15 minutes of running. Not totally numb, just around the toes. This is my good foot by the way, not the one with the bad ankle. Well, of late, the numbness has subsided and on this run, I felt no numbness at all. I could attribute this to one of two things. Either I my gait was favoring my "good" foot, causing the numbness and now that I'm getting a little looser and stronger on the bad foot, it's n longer happening. Or, my fitness improvments, however small, now preclude my body's necessity to send all my blood to my brain and heart, just to keep me alive during even the lightest exercise. :) Still, it was nice not to experience that numbness.
