Yesterday after work I did my non-run workout; Tai Chi, yoga, running stretches, push-ups, sit-ups, and foam roller. At work I iced my heel which helped my plantar faciitis after walking at lunch time. Just before leaving work I put heat on my heel and that helped allot. Today before getting out of bed I stretched my foot with a belt and put on a pair of new running shoes and I had very little pain in my heel-I think my old shoes may be the culprit! Today I ran on the streets again as the trails are too frozen, I am anxious to start my 13 week half marathon training later this month.
One of the changes I need to make is to tweak my diet a little so I can lose some more weight, currently I am at 204 lbs., I would like to be around 185 for the half marathon. I eat very well for breakfast-oatmeal, and during the day at work-fruit, vegetables, cliff bar etc and supper. My downfall is when I get home from work I always need a snack and I usually overdue it. I am going to try to do better.
