  1. Thank you guys for your valuable inputs. I bought a new pair of shoes and it seems to have worked. There is a still a bit of pain that starts at about the 20th minute of the run, but, contrary to the earlier pain, this one is gone once I finish the run. I am focusing on the step cadence and the landing to see if any correction is needed. The terrain is uneven too!

I could sense my clothes telling me that there is a change ("shrink") in the body b
  5. Hello there, I am trying to lose fat and have opted for jog/run on treadmill and weight training on alternate days. On the days of treadmill, I have been running around 4.8km with max speed of 8 min/km. The problem I am facing is the fatigue and sluggishness after the run. (I eat an oatmeal 30-40 min before the run.) Any pointer is much appreciated!
