Recovery – Healthy Breakfast with Avocados and Continuous Home Remedies on Plantar Fasciitis

cycling class, cycling, gym, cardio, sweat,

Second week of recovery. While working on my cardio in cycling class, I’ve decided to revisit my diet as well. It isn’t a drastic overhaul of my diet yet, but it surely is the beginning. This is something that I am going to do more research of and evaluate in the weeks to come as I am slowly recovering from my foot injury. Read More…

Fartlek Run and Daniels’ Running Formula

fartlek training, uphill, baldwin hills, training, running,

Fartlek had to come in the picture.

When I decided to work with the new training program, I was quite excited about the new challenges and the new possibilities.

But my right foot injury occurred. Since then, I’ve been anxiously waiting for the plantar fasciitis to lapse. Although it is mild, and as much as I want to get the training started, I didn’t want to take a chance. So, I haven’t even walked to work like I did before when my left foot in a worse shape. Part of me figured that my right foot could use rest while not walking at all. Read More…

Another Injury. Another Setback.

Another Injury, another setback, foot injury, foot, injury, running, marathon, marathon training, training, plantar fasciitis, plantar fascia, inflammation, inflamed,

This rather came as a surprise. Although I knew it was there, I didn’t think that it would become an injury that ended up sidelining me. Again. It was the inflammation of the plantar fascia, which caused a bit of heel pain. At least, it is minor, and I know how to remedy this.

Easy Thanksgiving Day Run with Strides

I am thankful for the fact that I’ve recovered from plantar fasciitis and can run without having relapses. I must say though that I can run long miles and do strenuous hikes with sole support. I walked in sandals along the beach in Malibu last Sunday and my left foot was having very slight discomfort in 20 minutes, which showed that, without good sole support, my left foot is not healed enough to take on even a short stroll.

3 mile recovery run on day of 2014 NYC Marathon

02-12-13-carrera-solidaria

I had a feeling that I could run. And I wanted to run. It was a recovery run time. At least 2-3 miles, I told myself.

The temperature has dropped due to the rain Friday night, so I decided not to go hiking Saturday morning while giving my left foot more time to rest. So, part of me wanted to make up for the lack of outdoor exercise and also to see where it is at in terms of my left foot’s recovery progress. Like I noted in the previous post, it has been already over a month since the injury occurred, and as a matter of fact, I have seen a gradual recovery progress, including the recent 10 minute runs on the treadmill. But I couldn’t hold it back any longer. It was time to put it to the test. In the street. Even just for 3 miles. Read More…

Recovery progress report #2

Running


I’ve been focusing on healing my left foot for quite some time now. And today actually marked exactly a month, since I got injured. Of course, I started seeing a significant improvement over 1 1/2 weeks ago, but I didn’t want to rush anything. Part of me was not convinced that my foot was really ready to hit the pavement, and as I wrote it in the previous post, being able to run on the treadmill at a slower pace wasn’t good enough. However, walking up and down the stairs seemed fine. So, I decided to go hiking this past Saturday – Skyline Trail. Read More…

Plantar Fasciitis and home remedies

A combination of these three - Feetures sleeve socks - can ease the plantar fasciitis pain

I’ve been lying low due to my plantar fasciitis for the last few days. I have not run since last Wednesday and have been attending to this current problem. So far, regrettably it cost me a good, long hike yesterday, and I am still not seeing a huge improvement. And the Long Beach Marathon is only 6 days left. Read More…
