For a very long time I have been dealing with what I am assuming is plantar fasciitis. When I say a long time I really mean almost 2 years. By dealing with it I really mean ignoring it. I have stopped running for about a month, in the past, to try and get it to heal but that did not work and it was probablly because the shoes I was wearing were sandels and basically they were like wearing no shoes at all.
Now I am going to get more serious about it. I am going to stop running for a month and I have not run in about 12 days. I am stretching my heel and icing it at night. I have also noticed that waitressing is not helping and in fact on the days I waitress it bothers me a lot during the day. But since we really need the money I cannot stop waitessing. If resting my foot by not running, icing and stretching do not help I think I will have to go see a doctor and get serious about this.
Let's hope that a month of rest, ice and stretching will help it go away.
