But on a side note, it is good to see that even elite runners (like the rest us "normal" runners) get plantar fasciitis - and they have to do all the same things for recovery. Night splints, golf balls, frozen water bottles, stretching, double checking with a MRI, shockwave therapy (that was next for me),...and you just have to wait. There is no magic pill. Most of the stuff I read while suffering through my PF said it would usually last no more than 4 to 12 months. If you are a runner, that's an eternity! Mine lasted 3.5 months then just went away one day.
I still have twinges if I do too much, mostly just a stiff foot after sitting down for awhile at night but no pain. I'm trying to make sure I cross train and not do too much running on consecutive days.
Speaking of training: so far this week...
Sunday- 6.2 miles (treadmill)
Monday- 3.5 miles (treadmill- hills)
Tuesday- 20.4 miles spinning (legs were dead- bad workout)
Wednesday (today)-?? I wanted to run since the weather is great, but I have my first night of a running clinic and I'm not sure what to expect so I don't want to be wiped out- also probably need a rest day at some point.
Thursday- spinning night/or running- depends on the weather :-)
Friday- easy 3
Saturday- my first race of 2012- Harrigan's 5k.
