Plantar Fasciitis Improving February 1, 2007

Posted by Lisa Sabin in boston marathon, marathon, Plantar Fasciitis, running.

I did some crosstraining today. I spent 10 minutes on the elliptical trainer, 10 minutes on the stationary bike and ran 1 mile. I am trying to crosstrain a bit more so I don’t become deconditioned while I am working through the plantar fasciitis.

The work I am doing for my plantar fasciitis has been helping. I’ve been icing and stretching. I have a new band exercise that I am doing to strengthen the anterior tibialis. That’s the muscle that’s in the front of the shin. It is activated by flexing the foot. My physical therapist is having me do a couple of sets of 10 every day with inversion, straight up and eversion

I am excited about getting fitted for orthodics tomorrow. I am ready to move forward in training for Boston!
