I finally ran tonight with my new insoles! Just a short little 7 miler. I realize 7 miles really isn’t short, but after these last 15 & 17 milers, 7 miles felt like nothing!
So I’m still using the golf ball and icing on a daily basis. And stretching. I think the combo is helping. Still some minor pain in my left heel/foot, but my right is pretty much pain free now. I’m just trying not to start walking weird so that my right one doesn’t get all messed up again…
Anyway, I wore the Superfeet insoles in my Brooks Pure Connect shoes tonight and honestly, it only took about a quarter of a mile to get used to them and get “in my groove”. Besides running in 90 degrees tonight, I felt great! The real test will come in the morning when I get outta bed! 😉 Here’s to hoping this combo is my cure-all and I won’t have to end up at a podiatrist after the marathon! But if it comes to that, I have 2 options from 2 different friends that have dealt with plantar fasciitis – a chiropractor that deals with ligaments & does foot massages that feel like your being killed, but actually do miracles to help the issue; and a podiatrist that a co-worker has used to have surgery on both feet for this issue…But I’m believing that neither of these options will need to be used. 🙂
If these insoles continue helping, I’m going to have to go get a couple more pairs!
Oh. P.S. The 1 minute of push-ups every morning upon rolling out of bed? Yaaaa…about that. It lasted 3 days. BUT! I’ve been getting in pigeon pose everyday for a few minutes! 🙂 You win some, you lose some.
How are you doing this week?
How’s your running and/or workouts??
What are your plans for this long Labor Day weekend??? (I’m kinda sad about it because it means summer is kinda sorta over. 😦 )
