Running + Plantar Fasciitis

We are already SMACK dab in the middle of the week! It's crazy! I hope you're having a good week and a great day so far!

So, running! I love to run in the summer and that has not been happening. I was put on running restriction by my Physical Therapist, but the Plantar Faciitis was not getting any better. Stretching, icing and massaging and anything else, my feet still are so sore. I've tried it ALL! 

I was sent off to get custom orthotics for my feet! That seems so weird! Then I get to wear these lovely or not so lovely boots at night. 
These things hurt too!! On both feet.. You can't possibly sleep with them on! I want my sleep back. 

My orthotics should be here July 9!!! This makes me super thrilled?? Why?? Because my husband and I are going international for a half marathon! 

That reminds me, must go update the passport!! Well, even though I I have a super bad case of PF and I have to wear boots/ orthotics, I'm still not giving up on running. Since I can't run a lot, I'm walking and soon will be adding the Jeff Galloway method back into my workouts to bring back my pace and running groove.

Q: Where is the coolest place you have traveled internationally? If you haven't traveled international, where in the U.S.?

Hope the orthotics work well for you. That is a bummer that you have to sleep in those feet stablizers. Those do not look comfortable at all.

So sorry about the PF! I hope that gets better soon. My coach has it as well and swears by those stabilizers at night. I've never run internationally but would love to one day!! :)

I'm glad they work because they hurt!!! I had to take a night off because I wasn't sleeping.. They are like wearing ski boots!
