I signed up for Warsaw marathon - taking place end of September.
From the end of April I developed plantar fasciitis - had to back out of HM and basically took the whole month off running. I started easing back in in the last two weeks - following physio advice taking things slowly. So far so good - I am very pleased that the pain hasn't returned.
Before PF my weekly mileage was about 22, with very little cross-training, last week (second week of recovery) about 13, but with more cross-training
However, the marathon is in 14 weeks and any training plan indicates I should be doing much more mileage that I am doing now.
What is the best strategy to get back in line with the training plan: maybe concentrate on increase of LSR first rather than general volume and intensity?
I fully expect comments like 'forget it and re-schedule for Spring' - which I will do if PF flares up again, but I would like to give it a good shot if recivery continues.
first results from trials suggest it's good for weight loss, fat loss and metabolic health. I am still unsure if it agrees with heavy endurance training. My personal experience - hence very unreliable - is that it can be problematic, especially on the day after if it's a a day for a heavy workout. Would be very interested to hear otherwise.
