Running Diaries / (never) Not running

I had been running for seven weeks straight when it happened. I've been doing the Start to Run programme. On Friday I finished week seven and everything was fine. The day after (on Saturday) I had a soccer match. I felt something on the bottom of my foot that didn't feel right, but I was like oh well. The next day I went for my usual Sunday morning run, you all know how much I love to run on Sunday morning. After ten minutes I felt it again. I finished my round and wasn't to bothered by it. 

That was until I woke up the next morning. I got out of bed and immediately felt the same thing on the bottom of my foot again. I didn't go to soccer practice that evening, but after a few days it felt better. So I went to soccer practice, I went out running again and I played the soccer match as well. After the game it really didn't feel good. I decided that, apparently, it needed more time to heal. For two whole weeks I didn't play soccer and didn't go running. It felt like forever, but after those two weeks everything felt normal again. I went to soccer practice twice and played the soccer match. Everything feels fine again. 

Now the big question is, what was the cause of all this? Have I've been doing to much (soccer three times a week and running three times a week), is it because of my running shoes (even though I went to Runnersworld to get them) or is it the fact that I run on a hard road (which I'm not used to with always playing soccer on grass)? I'm going to start running again this Sunday, so we'll see how it goes.
