Chapter 2 page 278 - heel update 3 (of many)

Here's another post you may not be too interested to read, but it comes with some of my most unattractive photos :)!

Today was my 3rd actual rehab session and you know what the agenda was . . .

#1) Scraping (ohhh how that tickles to the point of torture and hurts to near tears -all wrapped up in one big scraping party!)

#2)  Manual tissue manipulation - kind of like a massage, but definitely NOT.  Today, she decided to go up my calf just to make sure it was all good - and OUCH, she found a spot just below my knee on my upper left calf - the therapist pressed on that exact spot for like 2 straight hours (okay, exaggeration, but still it was seriously like 10 minutes . . . she swears she wasn't crushing some vital artery - though, I'm skeptical!!!  Kidding - I'm sure these delightfully painful sessions are all going to pay off in being PF free some day soon!!!


#3)  Taping - tomorrow, "C" and I are planning on running 12 miles (on a hilly course) so my therapist thought it would be a good idea to tape it to see how it may affect my pain level during the run.  She's actually taped it for me before - but this will be a much better comparison.  I didn't take a photo of it until I got home at which time, Pacer thought "hmm, what is this on your foot mom - I gotta smell it!!!"


  1. Is that your work look? You look so much different! I have only see the race day Wells.

    P.S. I think you should email me more about this race stuff. My mind is still boggled!

  2. Those scraping pictures look painful! Ouch! But all that torture will be worth it once you're PF-free!
