~ Bleeding After Running: Common Causes ~

What are the common causes for why the back of your feet (like 1 and 1/2 inches above your heel) would bleed after jogging (not running) like a mile or half a mile or something?

 

 

I'm guessing this is a common problem, so what would be the most common causes? Had this shoe for a while. Shouldn't be the shoe....

 

 

*Shoe: I checked the back (of the inside) of the shoe and it seemed flat. Had this shoe for a while. Shouldn't be the shoe....

 

*Cold: It was cold outside, but really? I don't think that would cause that

 

*?????????????????????????????????????/

 

*Socks??? They're just regular socks. Shouldn't be a problem.

 

*?????????????????????????????????

    ~ Bleeding After Running: Common Causes ~

    No, it's not a particularly common problem in my experience. You don't say how much it's bleeding or if there is any pain.  Is it one foot or both?  I have to assume that something is rubbing, which generally implicates the shoe.  You say you've had the shoes "...for a while."  How Long?  They might be getting worn. There should be a plastic "counter" that runs around and supports the fabric of the heel.  Check if the top of that is the height where the bleeding occurs.  Make sure your shoes are sized properly, usually one-half to a full size bigger than your street shoe, or a thumb-nail width between the longest toe and the front of the shoe.
