So I went back to yoga this morning. Man I love being there. It's so hard to make that drive that I can't do it as often as I'd like. However, as good as that class feels, I was supposed to do 5-6 miles running today. I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I've been doing a lot of stretching since my heel first started hurting about 5 weeks ago, but I'm adding ice. I did a circuit class yesterday morning, and then just 24 minutes of hills on the treadmill at a 6, along with all of the weight lifting I usually do. It felt great at the time, kind of an easy workout, but then it was really hard to hobble out of bed this morning. That was after icing, and Jeff massaging my feet and rubbing aspercreme into them last night. Once I get going I'm OK, and the yoga with the 23,785 downward dog poses really felt good. But but... it was so hard to work up to my pathetic gains in speed and distance I don't want to lose them by cutting back. My dad gave me a great site for Plantar Fasciitus that I'm studying, but do you think I can just do my thing for another month and then take time to heal? This sucks.
I am a fitness instructor, AFAA certified personal trainer, and a mom of three. Most of the time I'm vegan, with some crazy "free" meals a couple times a week. I have a love/hate relationship with my yard depending on how much work it needs! I grew up in San Diego, and love the ocean. I scuba, but sometimes have panic attacks snorkeling. Given the choice between the superpowers of invisibility and flight, I'd pick flight in a heartbeat. I love my husband, and his patience with my crazy habit of getting into something that's well over my head.
