Day 35 of my fitness streak, I got in a short trail run, a 6.5 mile out-and-back to Top of the World in Laguna Beach. My heel is only slightly better from plantar fasciitis. It’s bad when I first wake; I can hardly walk. But it’s been worse. There were times last year when I had to fall out of bed and crawl out of the bedroom. Seriously. Kind of a funny picture eh?
Well, I taped up my right arch quite well and experienced minimal pain during today’s run. I tried to pick up my pace on the downhills. I succeeded, but that’s when I tended to get the heel pain.
Overall, I had a lovely run. The weather was cool, the ocean was a deep blue. It’s really time though to start on heavy rehabilitation for the foot. Time is ticking away.
