So in my last post I mentioned that whatever hurts immediately following your race usually disappears quickly and that whatever new hurts a day or two after is what lingers and that that is the REAL soreness. Mine was my calves, which are good now. But what showed up 4 days later was the bottom of my left foot starting to hurt.
Crap! The dreaded PF?!?!?!?: Plantar Fasciitis? I have had a bout once early early this year, but it went away after two days. Done and out.
Well this time it just moved to the outside left of my left foot.
AND STAYED....the bottom of the arch of my foot is fine now, as is the heal.
It doesnt hurt when I press, push, twist that part of my foot with my hands; it only hurts when I put weight on it while walking or standing.
Now get this!!!
I can run on it FINE. I ran 5 miles on it this morning and felt barely anything. But yet I am grimacing my teeth while walking.
Sooooo, are any of you fellow bloggers/readers a foot expert in any form that has had experience or has knowledge of what part of the foot that is and why it hurts?
Circled in RED is the area of pain while walking
In the mean time, ICE will be my new best friend!
