Yesterday, my plantar fasciitis was at one of its worst points ever. But I stepped back into my regiment of aggressive massaging and taking Aleve yesterday evening, and this morning I woke up and it felt enormously better. Pretty crazy, but in a good way. No problems during today's run either.
I guess if there is a bright side to PF it's that, unlike some other ailments or injuries, you do have some power over it. I'm going to continue the massaging and NSAIDS treatment to keep it under control, since it works well when I make myself do it.
Run went very well. Met my goal of keeping the splits pretty even and around 8:30/mile. According to the Pfitz plan, that's the middle ground of where my pace should be for my general medium-long and long runs. Heart rate data also looked great.
Good end to the week. Rest day is on the agenda for tomorrow.
Ran 15.3 miles @ 8:23/mile pace.
