Spring Preview

Temperatures got up into the lower 50s today, which had me raring to go for a run. The problems I had over the weekend were pretty much all gone. I had been just feeling run down, as well as having stomach issues on top of the typical light-moderate PF pain. Not a good combination. However, nothing a few extra days rest wouldn't take care of (except for the PF). Felt quite energetic out there today, but kept it short as a precaution.

Tomorrow I have the appointment with the Active Release Therapy specialist for the PF. I'll do a post on it afterwards.

Ran 4.2 miles @ 7:49/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 156/169
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Lower 50s, overcast.
Shorts, long sleeved shirt (sleeves rolled up about 1.5 miles into the run... too warm!).

A friend of mine who is a frequent poster on the ultra list (Deborah Sexton) fought PF for quite a while and made no progress at all. Finally, another doctor determined that it wasn't PF at all, but a form of tendonitis that mimicked the symptoms of PF. They spent months treating the wrong problem. Just a thought. Are you positive that it's PF?

I got to run outside last night, although it was raining. But, time on the roads goes so much faster than the treadmill, which is where I'm training today.

Get healthy. I want you on that line with me in June.
