Stretching, Stretching, and More Stretching

Past experience dictates that running on hills has been a catalyst for PF flare-ups, so after yesterday's hilly run I launched a full-on stretching assault. It appears to have worked well, as I was able to get in a good ten-mile run today comfortably. The stretching shock and awe will continue on the legs with the aim to loosen everything up and alleviate the tension being placed on the plantar fascia.

Tomorrow is a scheduled rest day, and Tuesday I plan to take things light. This week has been a good step-up in mileage for me (43.7 miles).

Ran 10.3 miles @ 8:49/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 144/155
Paved roads.
Moderately hilly.
Upper 20s to lower 30s, mostly cloudy.
Long pants, fleece jacket, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves (off and on)

Well, the news emanating from your site have definitely been better recently. Let's hope it will continue that way.

Stretching is good, don't let up just because it starts to feel better. I see signs of improvement with you too!

Shock and awe seems to be the way to go. Looking much more confident for WS100.
