Hope you had a pleasant weekend to cap off a nice week! I had a somewhat unfortunate running hangup this past Saturday. I had my first flare up of plantar fasciitis. Serious bummer! My training had been going well and now this! 🙁
Based on things going on, I am pretty sure it was actually the shoes I had been using for walking. I walk around 30 miles a week and apparently they were not what they should have been! Oh well, time for some cross training! I did a serious bike workout this morning and actually enjoyed it! Anyone else have PF before? Throw how you dealt with it in the comments!
