Question for the folks here, has anyone dealt with plantar fasciitis (PF)? My heel has been sore the last month or so. When I run the pain fades after the first mile so it doesn't seem to be impact and I focus on mid-foot striking. In the morning the soreness is at it's peak and lessens as my day goes on.

With two half marathons coming up (end of Dec, middle of Jan) I would like to keep my running levels high, however if I need rest I can switch to biking for a few weeks.

Jennifer, Alex, Alan, thanks for your motivation! It is kind of slow in the last few weeks. I tend to check in almost daily but not much to say.... SInce my last Oly in October I have been kind of 'letargic' and laaaazy.... Just sporadic biking and spinning, no swimming and very little running. But today two good things happened: 1) BDAAS recovered some activity, great source of inspiration, and 2) after a month of research, trying to fit a good HIM in 2015 with my family plans, work and traveling, I found a good HIM near Barcelona, which will be my first HIM. So after that -still not signed in- went for a 10k run and realized how much shape I can lose in less than a month. Tomorrow I will be in the pool, Sunday scheduled a 3h bike.... back on track, now I have a goal. No more whining, need to design a plan.

Mark, no experience with FP, but from what I hear from friends, take GOOD care of it, so you can run pain-free many more years.

I battled with PF and I can tell you that it sucks. Lots of stretching especially the calves helped me. Ultimately however to get rid of it I needed professional help in the form of my sister in law (She is a PT). I had been seeing a PT for a few months with some improvement but it was still bothering me. My sis-in-law found something that wasn’t moving correctly in my foot which was contributing to the issue. Plus I had very tight calves. Additionally I began running with a heart rate monitor which I think helped with my pace, shortening my stide which many say helps. Have a look in the history of this board. David also provided some great references for treating and preventing PF (Page 17). My experience is that unfortunately without professional treatment and rest it will continue to be a pain.

Dead F'n Last (is greater than) Did Not Finish (is greater than) Did Not Start

It's better to start a race and come in last than to not finish or even start it.

Hi Mark - I feel your pain!

Here is my previous post from a few months ago: I haven't had a serious bout with PF for two years thanks to a few things that I've added to my running. First, I almost always run on dirt. running on the roads/sidewalks are are recipe for disaster for me. Luckily, I have a cc course about 1/2 a mile from my house and I take full advantage of it. 2) I've made rolling and stretching my fascia. achilles/calf a priority. 3) I spend time each week strengthening my feet so it can better handle the weight and not put so much pressure on the fascia.

Here is some good info on stretches and strength exercises - http://www.cumc.columbia.edu/student/health/pdf/O-P/Plantar%20Fasci...

I do two other things that aren't on this sheet - I roll with a golf ball (I tried rolling with a bottle of beer - but it didn't work as well as the small golf ball). Another exercise I do is to pick up small rocks/pebbles between my toes. I even have a zip lock bag with 50 stones that I spill out on the carpet and then pick up and put in piles with muy feet. This really strengthen my feet and keeps the PF pain at bay. Good luck!

I have two additional suggestions: Take a break from running now and bike for a few weeks. During that time - do the exercises above and ICE LIKE IT"S YOUR JOB! Also - give some thought to aqua jogging. It will help you maintain your fitness while letting your feel heal.

Good luck!

HI Folks - I'm still in the triathlon doldrums. My calf is slowly recovering but I haven't been exercising at all. I hope something clicks back on in my brain because not only am I starting to get fat - but I'm also starting to miss it. Right now - work is sucking the life out of me, so I need to find a better balance. I think it's time to start assessing myself some long overdue Coors Light Penalties.

Beer Drinkers-

Been a long while. I fell off the tri training map for a long while. Health and life issues caught up to me.

I started running again. My calf issues of the past are no more. It just took laying off for a year and a half.

Looking at a 50K in the Spring.

Wife and I started drinking wine. I had no idea. I still enjoy an IPA, and the Winter brews are now here in full swing.

Just checking in.
