Now a running update.
I seem to have developed a bit of Plantar Fasciitis in one foot. REALLY strange because I haven't changed my shoes or done anything new and my feet have NEVER bothered me before.It just sort of came out of nowhere. I felt it a little bit on and off for a week or two (but really minor - I wasn't worried about it at all) and then it got extra sore after a 14 miler on Tuesday so coach and my PT both ordered two days off. I almost never take days completely off from running and my whole body feels "off" when I do, but I want to be smart and get this resolved so I did as I was told. I am also being proactive with lots of rolling, stretching, icing, etc.
This morning I ran six miles slow and easy and it felt ok. Not perfect, but better than two days ago and it doesn't feel any worse after running. I am trying not to over stress it or be too grouchy!
I have a 5k planned for the morning. I have only done three 5k's ever (this will be number four) and I hate to miss it. Coach thinks it will take a bit for the PF to completely resolve and left it up to me if I want to race this or not. Obviously Chicago is the priority, but I get to do so few races that as of right now I am leaning towards going for it.
Anyone else deal with PF? Any advice for me?
Anyone else racing this weekend?
