That is what I'm saying to myself.
Forgive me for one blog moment while I do a little whining. As many of you know, I (for some sick reason) like to run.
Lately, my right foot has been complaining to me about running. I've been dealing with right heel pain (as in plantar fasciitis) for over a year. It comes and goes - with no apparent pattern. I've been to two sports medicine doctors, endured a cortisone shot in the heel and even completed physical therapy.
Goodness gracious - I even sleep with a crazy-looking splint on it to keep the tendons stretched as I slumber.
And it still hurts.
It makes me a little crabby, too.
So, I've created a new injury-management plan to try to make myself feel like I have control over this situation.
Here it is....
Ice the injury at least 2x/day.
Eliminate the week day runs for a few weeks (and substitute in swimming or the elliptical machine.)
Stretch a bit more (maybe someday I'll join TriDi at yoga or pilates...maybe)
