  1. Hi, Check out this post, I saw it this morning and the article another person linked in it may be of interest to you: http://forums.zenlabsfitness.com/topic/2515-pins-needles/?fromsearch=1
  2. Hey there! Slow your pace, make sure you have good posture - head up, shoulders back, chest open. Sometimes, when we get tired we start to hunch over and that makes breathing difficult and can cause cramping. Also, try breathing in and out through both your nose and mouth at the same time.
  3. You need the right shoes for sure. Visit a running store and get a fitting. I usually invest in a pair from the running store after getting fit, then purchase my replacements online for less money. Also, consider a joint support supplement if you do not take one. My husband and I like the Move Free Advance. It really helps eliminate/reduce knee pain.
  4. Did you get fitted for shoes at a running store or by someone who is experienced in fitting shoes for runners? You probably need a wider toe box or wider shoe. Our feet swell when we run, I used to have a lot of issues with my feet until I finally found the right shoe for me. I ran 5 half marathons between November 2014 and January 2015, then I had to take several months off because my feet couldn't take it. I had even been fitted for shoes twice before, second time I got put in a wide shoe which helped. Third time was the charm, a few months ago I got a shoe with both a wide toe box and more cushioned shoe and now I'm training again for two half marathons this fall and a full marathon in January. The right shoe made all of the difference!
