Do you run on a track or concrete/asphalt?
I run on a track.
If I run on concrete (sidewalks) I feel it almost instantaneously.
Asphalt is more forgiving because of the give when heat hits it. Typically I try to run on gravel paths as the give is better than asphalt and it doesn't hurt my knee nor my ankle and doesn't put as much stress on my ligaments.
Also, I make sure I have the best footwear possible. I love the running room. Actually, I just bought the new Saucony Hybrids plus the new Hurricane model.
