I am blogging from my phone, please excuse any brevity, awkward formatting, or random autocorrects.
Yesterday I flew down to Charlotte, NC, to visit my grandparents, who live in South Carolina, about ten minutes over the NC border. I packed three running outfits with me and told myself I had to run at least once while here, with the ultimate goal of running 3 times. Well, I completed my minimal goal of running at least once!
This is the second time I ran since the half. I’ve been trying to rest my feet and lower legs–I only planned to rest for a week after the half but my feet have been really bothering me lately. This plantar fasciitis thing stinks. I am so frustrated because I’ve been resting and wearing sneakers everywhere (as opposed to flats or flip flops.) I just can’t seem to shake it off. So, when I run now I have to stop and stretch every mile or so to prevent aches and cramping in my feet and calves. Any thoughts? Today my stretching partners were weeds.
