Facing East Again

Today is the first day that I’ve seen the sun rise in almost three months. Most workouts are done before the sun even thinks about showing its face.

I’ve been battling plantar fasciitis for the last three months. The initial phase of pain in the morning is finally gone. It still gets sore but it feels like a sore worked muscle rather than the tearing/burning pain it use to be. I’ve only been biking on my trainer and swimming for the last 2.5 months. Very slowly I started to experience less pain. I’ve been rolling the bottom of my foot with a golf ball during the day, stretching the plantar tendon and calves several times per day and icing the foot once per day. A PT has been doing acupuncture with stimulation (electrodes) and some shock wave therapy.

Today is my first day back in the run game. Work out was 5 min EASY jog, 1 min walk, 5 reps. Felt good in the beginning, a little sore towards the end and as the day is going on no pain! Thursday another short jog then 7,1 on the weekend.

I actually thought my running days might be over but that probably isn’t the case.

Last week’s workout:
Rest and sleeping in.
Thursday 30 min fun ride on my trainer with my new Louis Garneau TT 8.8… Awesome
Saturday 30 min run/walk
