Feet falling asleepthatsmybush

I have begun base training a few weeks ago and something that has never happened before is happening after about thirty minutes of running my feet begin to fall asleep. I have heard that this could be caused from a pinched nerve but I have not had any back problems. I have shoes that have been fitted to me and other than a few extra pounds from the winter hibernation I can't find any other differences. It started in just my left foot and now is effecting both. Help....

Something is reducing the circulation in your feet. try loosening up your laces a little or tell the people that fit your shoes what is going on. If you have custom orthotics they may need some adjustment.

I had the problem recently with my cycling shoes and I just loosened things up a little and I was fine. It took a little getting used to but I dont notice it now...
