The week didn’t start off that great in the injury sector. It has ended much better than it started.
Sunday: Took the day after the marathon off to recover. My recovery time has been much shorter in recent years.
Monday: I went slow and easy. B joined me on his bike. It was good to get some good quality time in with my son. He is a good conversationalist.
Tuesday: Felt pretty good considering my legs are still a bit wobbly from Saturday’s race.
Wednesday: Taking it easy but definitely should not have run on this foot. I went to get a deep tissue massage yesterday. My plantar fasciitis is back now. This sucks. Also, California and Oregon are on fire– the smoke has traveled to Idaho making outside sports a little bit less fun.
Thursday: My foot is starting to get back to normal, but it is still hurting and not even close to 100%. The elevation felt good tho.
Friday: This is not my week. My PF seems to have improved but now my knee hurts from that same deep tissue massage.
Saturday: I wrapped my knee yesterday and in the morning, foam rolled, and crossed my fingers. It worked. My knee had no issues and I managed to complete my race as first place woman, second place overall runner.
While that massage caused some serious issues in the short-term, I think my PF may be completely gone now. Things are on the up and up.
