    Question My foot hurts like crazy

    Recently I just bought my first longboard, and I have been loving it, and have been out riding with friends non stop. after about 4 days though my foot that I push with is so sore that it even hurts to walk.
    Has anyone else had this problem, or is my foot just not used to this? My shoes probably aren't the best, just a pair of Sneaux, but holy crap.

    Very, very many who starts skating experience this, it`s just your foot not used to it... You need to give it rest for a few days and not overdo the skating.

    Feet are the most neglected part of the body.. on a daily rate, they take abuse. Rest 'em up and keep at it. Buy good shoes that fit your feet, or ride barefoot

    Yeah, you're just using muscles that never got worked as hard as this before. Give it some time to rest and rebuild and then skate some more. Soon there will only be pain from road rash....

    My foot's got blisters from the DC shoes I bought, hip from falling on it, and inner thigh from pushing I guess, but all I want to do is board some more.

    I wish these would heal faster

    You're not alone, it happened to me big time when I first started. About 3 months later and I'm not really feeling any problems at all.

    wait another 10-15 years... trust me, it gets really neat.

    and smelling like Aspercreme is decidedly NOT sexy.

    When I first became addicted it was my calf that layed me up, but I was back out there as soon as I could be.

    Hot/Cold alternating helps IMO.

    Thanks for all of your opinions. I'll just give it a rest for a few days, which sucks as it's so much fun. I'll get some better shoes and just work up to the point where my foot decides not to hurt.

    Yes i am suffering this too,
    On the area from the top of my foot (the ankle ball), down the side and out to my little toe. It is so sore it hurts to touch!

    I have not skated for 15 years and recently took up longboaring mainly for excercise/transport (and fun), been out every day since for at least 5km a day.

    I am glad you posted this, @35 i thought it might be arthritis or somthing

    Still happens to me if I spend a few days really pushing it. This weekend all my friends were off in cornwall, so I got on my board everyday for at least 4 hours, after the long weekend (bank holiday) my whole body ached.

    Like they said, its new. Its gonna hurt. Make sure that when you are pumping you are pushing with the ball of your foot and not your heel. Thats a good way to destroy your legs and feet trust me.

    Also, stretch before you go out skating. Both legs. Not just your pushing leg. I didnt used to stretch and now i have shin splints because of it. YAAAYYYYYYY.

    This reminds me of the guy who came asking if it was normal that his feet were sore after skating for 20 miles, 1 week after getting his first longboard.

    Happened to me before. Yeah it's normal, your body will hurt after falling like that, specially where you landed. What's weird for me though is that I had these weird patches of bleeding raw muscle on my butt and back right where I hit the pavement. Is that normal? It almost seems as if my skin was rashed off.... weird? I think it might be testicular cancer.

    You are definitely not alone, since I got my board I've been putting in about an hour a day every day for a month, and recently my arch on my pushing foot is absolutely killing me, even though I wear comfortable shoes (converse all stars) with arch support inserts. As the others said, I'm pretty sure it's just not being used to it.

    Also, my right lower leg has become noticeably bigger from pushing; both the calf and some of the muscles above the ankle on the outside of my leg (specifically the distal part of the extensor digitorum longus muscle if anyone knows some anatomy), I presume this is pretty normal.
