Just as I felt I was getting back on track, now I've come to terms that I've most likely developed a case of plantar fasciitis. Ugh. Felt it coming on about a week and a half or so ago. Frustrating for sure, but I'm determined to lick this thing. Unfortunately, that means cutting back on my mileage for a while. I'm also going to do lots of stretching and put myself on NSAIDs treatment. I'm also considering the Strassburg Sock.
That aside, today's run felt great. Every other part of my body and mind is raring to go, just the stupid heel/foot discomfort from the plantars. We ran at Pineland Farms. About 10 of us in all. I mostly ran with Ryan and Jim, who were great company. All three of us are running the MDI Marathon next month, which will be fun.
Ran 13.4 miles @ 8:51/mile pace.
Mid-upper 60s, overcast, light rain.
