I've been a complete slacker when it comes to blogging this week. My life has not been too exciting, except for the fact that my poor dh has been sick, and we had company over Thanksgiving. Woo Hoo, exciting stuff!
Actually, other than the hubby being sick, we had a great Thanksgiving. It was the first time in about 5 years that I actually hosted. My mom and step-dad brought my nephew down to visit. We had a great time. My nephew and my oldest son are only 8 months apart so they are into the same stuff and Buster (younger by 2.5 years) was able to join in more of the fun this year. Lego and Hero Factory galore!
We took the boys to see Puss in Boots in the evening. They liked it, much cat humor (if you're a cat person), but it was a bit long in parts. Overall, it was good Thanksgiving. I was really happy that my stepdad was able to make it since he's been ill this year.
Today I went early to sign up for spinning, then I decided to hop on the treadmill and walk a bit. Of course, being the treadmills that I was doing some of my training runs on, it was extremely difficult to "just walk". I was feeling good Friday and Sat am, so figured I might as well try it. (Even though I knew I had a "bad"day with my heel just 2 days ago) I managed to walk 1/4 mile, run 1/2 mile (at 10:00 pace- slow for me) and walk 1/4 mile.
Overall, one mile. It didn't feel bad. I didn't limp, and I went slow enough that my heel didn't bother me! (score!) I stopped myself from doing more, since the nature of Plantar Fasciitis is pain after the activity, not during, so I didn't want to over do it. It's been about 10 hrs and I'm still feeling good so, maybe?, I'm on the mend.
Monday, is my follow dr. appt. I made that 6 weeks ago, and when I did, I figured I'd cancel it since I'd be better by then. Hah! Instead, I'm wondering if I should go ahead and get the cortisone shot or do the iontophoresis that my PT suggested. I looked up my insurance coverage- which doesn't cover iontophoresis but I'm still not liking the idea for the shot. Iontophoresis is less invasive
