Morning fellow buzzers. Hope everyone is well and that your running is going okay during these dark cold winter days. I managed to get out for a run on Saturday and did just over 7 miles. Was hoping to do more but just didn't have the time - still 7 miles is better than nothing. It was quite a pleasant run has well because I waited until all the frost had gone off the ground and the air had warmed up a bit. I even had the sun shinning some of the time too.
I'm a bit gutted today though has I might have to reduce my running for a bit which isn't good because I've got a half marathon in February. I've been experiencing some pain underneath my foot near my heal since last week. I thought it might go in a few days but it was still bothering me yesterday so I thought I'd better get it checked out. Fortunately there's a minor injuries unit near where I live so I called in there on the way home. Apparently I've got Plantar Fasciitis which is inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament and is caused when the ligament develops tears in the tissue resulting in pain and inflammation. I've got to rest it, take ibuprofen and do some exercises and hopefully that will help. To say I'm gutted is an understatement. I don't want to stop my running altogether especially with having the HM in February, but I don't want to make it worse or prolong it. What I might do is just cut down on my run and maybe rest every other day and see how things go.
