You can come running in the pool with me :).
Might do that. After I got home and iced the foot, it felt fine - maybe the injury is causing me mental problems :)
You might need to adjust your outlook (hard to do at 70 I guess) to a more long-term approach, Harry. You are jumping back in to training by doing some very quick runs (for us) and being disappointed that there is pain.
My PF lasted 18 months... on EACH foot. It changed my entire approach to running. I NEVER thought I'd run on pavement/concrete again.
That's when I went back to Rock Hill again for several years.
It's a very unfortunate injury.
Others have healed faster than me, by being more proactive, and by luck. So, hopefully you will too.
Thanks Toivo! Need to slow down the runs, but surprised sub-8s feel so easy after all this time off. Saw Adam today and he said it is getting better - had improved since Tuesday. He said the flare-ups will happen when on the edge. Just need to slow down on my alternate day running pattern and just go 5K. For me the hard surface is all I can run on, if I sink any on soft surface it stretches the Plantar too much and makes things worse. At least I was encouraged today.
3 years later, I still massage my soles every day. Not sure it ever really goes away,just happy if i can keep it at bay.
...and another key (as you probably know) is to stretch and massage your calves. That's what caused it in the first place.
Adam rips the calf - really hurts, but does it help. I do a stretch after my runs that helps a lot; usually the stretching is all I need, but this time it is far worse.
