Chapter 2 page 330 - heel update
It's been a little bit since I gave you all an update on my heel and well, although I'm fairly certain you don't really care, I'm documenting the journey and you can feel free to skip this post. After 6 weeks of
hell physical therapy, I had fairly good results. My pain was cut by 50%. 2 days before my recent half I had to stand all day at work (like 14 hours of standing) and to my shock there was NO PAIN! That's completely and totally never happened. That type of standing (heck, just 20 minutes of standing) would have led to HUGE PAIN. Imagine my surprise the next morning when I had no first step pain. Then, Saturday, I had no real pain with my held during or after my half marathon. I remained pain free until this past Saturday's 2 miler, and now it's back. Each day it's getting a little more severe and right now (after our 4 miler today) it's hurting as much as it did prior to PT. The pain is pretty severe right at this minute which is what moved me to post about it (and the fact several of you have been so kind and asked me about it). It was so pleasurable to run pain free that I seriously hope I can get back to that point again. I have notified the therapist - no idea what the plan is! Now you know . . the rest of the story!
