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.

Surf City Marathon training ready – 7 miles


Surf City Marathon. Here I come.

For the past week, I was quite busy at work with long hours almost every day, however, part of me kept reminding myself that I have to run. I brought my usual running outfit to work and actually ran over 2 miles on a lunch break one day, however, that was about it. Although I was glad that my left foot again didn’t have a problem, I was quite anxious to have a longer run on this weekend because the Surf City Marathon was 2 1/2 months away.

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…
