You could try changing your cleat position. Even a very small change can make a difference.

Assuming saddle is at appropriate height and bike is set up ok...

My physio gave me the following bits of advice which seemed to help (my problem was with the knee cap, not sure if you have the same issue). I started off with too much enthusiasm and by the time the knee pain developed had to cut the kms back a bit until it resolved and most importantly avoid too many hard hills (particularly being in too high a gear/low cadence). The comment on cleat position is helpful-i found adjusting slightly so my foot was more turned out (ie adjust cleat by turning inwards on sole) certainly helped. good luck with fixing the problem, i hate it when injuries keep me off the bike (latest one has been my foot!).
