    I have seen a couple of posts with a similar problem. The consensus seems to be this is normal! What is never addressed though is - how long, on average does this discomfort persist.
    I have been walking barefoot exclusively for about three months (it is now August 4, 2014). The only time I wear shoes is to ride my bicycle. I am "clipped in" in a pair of Keen sandals.
    Thanks for any insight you may have!
    Thanks!

    For me, it lasted about 4 or 5 moths, only in the mornings.

    feet very warm around 5 o 6am when I was running too much during the 6 or 8 first months
    (I had to put them in the cold water very often)

    it's 16 months now, it completely disappeared

    in the morning the fascia is always sticky. do some foot pumps or flexions and extensions before getting out of bed. this helps a lot. Dr Mark

    Thanks Dr. Mark. I have been doing a little bit of warm up before getting out of bed. I'll try to be more diligent. I'll also try to be M more diligent about stretching and strengthening throughout the day.
