    a temporary pain-resistant foot

    Hello all members of the forum!
    Suppose that I feel like jogging today, but corns that I have under my left foot make it hard for me to run and take pleasure in it. How could I say that the longer I jog, the lesser the pain.
    Could I say "I develop a temporary pain-resistant foot"?
    What is your take on that?
    Thank you.

    I'm afraid it isn't natural. You might say "My foot becomes less sensitive to pain."
    I am not a teacher.

    I find your imagination quite amusing. People may not understand your sentence but they certainly appreciate a dash of your imagination.

    For your question, you could also say "my foot has become numb to pain".
