This might be a weird question but since I started sprinting my right food has been having these waves of heat. It's not painful just a strange feeling. It's usually occurring while I'm sitting at my desk. It also feels as though I need to "pop" the bones like you would pop you knuckles on your hands. Any clues?

Thanks for all the answers. I actually found out I have a pinched nerve in my foot. Basically I need to chill out for a bit on the sprinting until I can figure out how to fix this.

If your not already sprinting in grass, I would make the switch. The transition from a minimalist shoe to running in bare feet should happen slowly overof a period of months. Are you a quad dominant sprinter? This is one of the biggest issues I see with people starting out sprinting, you need to be sprinting with hamstrings and some gluteus, not quads and calfs.

I had a hot spot on my shin many years ago, went to the doctor and he could find nothing, and it eventually faded--but a few years later I developed a mass of tiny broken veins about 3" in diameter in that very area. I believe the heat is a sign of tissue damage. You may need to change your shoes, or go easy for a few weeks.

I would do some solid research on proper running form, even if you're already sure you're doing it right. Things like midfoot or forefoot strike, keeping the body upright, no excessive arm-swinging. It may very well be related to your form. Also, my chiropractor has been a huge help with each of my structural issues. I got lucky and found one on the first try who doesn't just crack my back and call it good to go, so be on the lookout for one who pays attention to the whole body.
