Although my knee still likes to remind me of its presence every once in a while, and although I'm still doing my PT streching daily - mostly out of paranoia, I think I'm past the worst of my IT Band issues. Unfortunately I started getting some pain on the outside of my right heel about 3 weeks ago, and this week the pain has gotten progressively worse. Based on the absurd amount of web trolling I've done around heel pain, everything presents itself as plantar fasciitis. I've been icing it, and stretching it, not going barefoot, elevating, rolling tennis balls under my feet while working, etc., and yet every day it's a little bit more sore. I tried doing my new yoga routine last night, but had to shut that down after about 25 minutes when the calf stretching was giving me heel pain.
Sadly this morning I decided to skip my run and shut down the running for a bit to see if I can get this under control. Looked back through my training log, and what this means is I've had a total of 2 runs in 2010 where I wasn't dealing with an injury. Hurt my calf on January 6, then worked through IT Band issues, and now dealing with my foot. Extremely frustrated to say the least. Trying to stay positive, but starting to wonder if my body is trying to tell me something and I'm just refusing to listen. Hopefully a few days off will do a body good.
