Five weeks into running again. Did not run at all last week which I think was the right decision. Done 2.52 miles an Tuesday and out the house this morning 5.37 and according to my Endomondo app on my phone 3.01 miles in 35.04 mins.
Was well chuffed at this, the distance is starting to come back again and felt really good after run aswell.
After 2 years out with Plantar Fasciitis that is my first week completed (yipee).
Diary so far
Monday 2nd Quick run only about 20 mins, foot felt fine but stamina rubbish.
Tuesday 3rd Early morning start 6am, out for 35 mins running on golf course and roads shattered but all ok with foot must admit had to stop a few times.
Thursday 5th Same again, 6am start out for 35 mins again having to walk run, but felt ok to atempt steep hill on golf course.
Sat 7th Later run this time 6pm with wife, and daughter on her bike, lots of stopping and starting but felt ok.
Tues 10th Out this morning 5.45 with my new running app on my phone ENDOMONDO what a great free apps this is, really good info that you can disect on your pc. Felt really heavy legged this morning and it was a bit of a stuggle but kept trying to reduce the walking breaks also tried out the gel sports soles that LIDL have on offer at present really good for £2.45.
Not sure if doing too much too soon, not doubt my body will tell me.
I have also started running again after being out of action since March 2009. I started running a few months after my 40th in 2008 and it became like a drug. My problems started after buying a new pair of running shoes whether this was the cause I will never know. I would get out of bed in the morning and could not put my full weight on my right foot. I went to a sports injury clinic and got advice on exercises and some physio. I presumed I had Plantar fasciitis but the sports physio was non committal. Anyway fast forward to May 2nd 2011 and I just made the decision to go out for a short run no problems felt great. So have been out at 6am this Tuesday and today and yes I am having to run walk but it feels great to be back out, just have to pace myself and not do too much too soon one more thing I bought gel insoles for my ASICS and personally it has made a big difference.
