Chapter 2 page 364 - new heel toy

In my (what feels like) endless attempt for relief from my annoying and painful plantar fasciitis, I have purchased a new device to assist with stretching . . . (drum roll, 'cuz I know the anticipation is killing you!)

I got this foot rocker for only $13.53 at Amazon (with free shipping).  I've been looking at these since November 2009, but they are all $30 and that just seemed crazy expensive - but recently, I stumbled upon this one and thought - YES!  It arrived today - woot!  My puppy thinks it's a chew toy and spent at least 30 minutes using her big dog bark to "show it who's boss!" (so cute, but crazy!). 

I know several high school cross country runners who use it and love it - and when you think of me you most certainly think of a high school cross country runner!  NOT!  Ha!

So . . .have you had any luck with a stretching aide device?


  1. Uh... how does this thing work?!

    We are most definitely going to need a photo "how to" on this one.

  2. I'm with Holly... I want to know how it works.

    Yoga is my best stretching tool... hands down!

  3. Video blog!

    That thing looks crazy! I've never used anything special to stretch. Good luck with it.

  4. I have one of those! I dont use it as often as I should though!
