Instep pain: Check the shoes and make sure that the lacing system is not too tight. When you are on the treadmill, your dorsiflexors are firing, possibly causing a tendinitis on the dorsum of the foot.Improving your heel strike, and spending less time on the ball of the foot may help.If you have a high instep, a prescription orthtoic can help prevent the instep from irritating.
