Plantar Fascititis, its getting better.....

When we go on vacation its tough because usually were we travel to is very flat with no change in terrain and you wear flipflops all the time. I always get a tiny little flair of plantar fascitis to my left heel when we go away and I always flip out over it. Whenever I get a small injury or concern I take it to the extreme, I say to myself ( " my season is over, I will not beable to run ever again, etc.....) its crazy, I'm such a dramatist and I get so overly concerned. I usually get right on top of any injury I have, I rest, I ice, I take Motrin, I do whatever I can to be smart about an injury so that I can make sure to get back to what I love to do as quick as I can. What has been really hard is that I am in marathon mode and running five days a week isn't really conducive to plantar fascitis, so I've cut back on the running, added more biking and swimming in the pool as much as I can, seeing as swimming in the ocean hasn't been allowed given the riptides, poisonous jellyfish and sea lice. I feel good.

Today I feel better, only two doses of Motrin, some ice, and I'm feeling pretty good. Biking 1 1/2 hrs and some rowing was good for me, hopefully tomorrows swim and run will be good, we'll keep you posted.

p.s. I emailed my PT just to keep her posted and what does this awesome lady do, call me on her vacation to tell me what I need to do to manage the situation. Who does that, I didn't expect anything but an email in a few days but I get a personalized phone call, now that is what I call an amazing person/friend/Physical Therapist. I'm already better because of her. Thanks Sara.

  1. oh, I'm sorry about the plantar fascitis. Ouch and Yuck! What is sea lice? The riptides have been awful this summer. Such a pita to not be able to swim.
