#Junathon Day 4 – further testing and improvement of plantar fasciitis


So, bright and early, my alarm went off at 5:30 for this morning’s Juneathon run.  Before getting out of bed, I did some ankle rolls followed by some stretching of my foot.  I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of intense pain!  In fact, my foot felt better than it had the previous morning!  Now, I don’t want to lead you astray into thinking I am pain-free.  That is definitely NOT the case.   I however, am not greedy.  I will take “less pain” and “able to run without a limp” and remain very happy!

Knowing that yesterday’s 1.5 did have increasing levels of foot pain, I decided I would only jump up to 2 miles today.

I actually started and stopped where the green dot is.  I think I got gyped a tenth of a mile..

That way I was always in easy “walk-home” distance if needed.  I did my usual, just head out and run, letting my body choose the pace.  When my Fantastic told me I was maintaining an 8.17 mile at the first mile marker, I was happily surprised!

Hmm.. this time my house raised up instead of sank during my run.. at least its balancing out?

The second mile was just a hair faster, but I was glad that I had only planned 2 miles for the day!  I forget that even taking two weeks off requires a little bit of an adaptation period to get everything back to normal!

Today’s run felt really good.  There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and it was nice and cool.  I could feel the PF in my foot, but it didn’t interfere with the running.  Tomorrow may be a bike-ride instead of a run – we will see!

Life is good!

About

I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.

    Great news! Glad you’re feeling much better!
    I also noticed you’re keeping your pace steady throughout which I remember you mentioning before about you wanting to work on that. Obviously, you are doing great! 😀
