Yes…they really do suck

I can’t run for now. It sucks.

I went to the doctor last week and I do have plantar fasciitis as well as really really need new orthotics. I was casted for them this week and will get them next week. I am also starting PT next week.

In the meanwhile, I am sleeping in a pair of really awful boots to stretch out my plantar fascia as well as doing lots of stretching and strenthing exercises. I tried to continue running and by Tuesday was in so much pain that I could hardly walk. That is a no-no.

I think I am going to start doing some pool workouts and work with my running coach who is really a personal trainer the rest of the time. I am hoping she can put together a couple of routines for me to continue to get into shape. I would like to go back to running when I am able but I want to condition and strengthen in the meanwhile so I will be in better shape.

Ugh…this sucks. I really wanted to run that 5K in May. Maybe I can walk it?
