I've been having some trouble with my right foot. It's plantar fascitis. I'm pretty lucky to have never had this bane before, but I do have it now. I've been pretty stupid about it, unfortunately. I haven't taken it that seriously; I've been negligent on the stretching. I've kept running, even though it hurts.

Now, I'm making a solemn vow to discontinue this ridiculous behavior.

I will wear inserts in all my shoes. I will take another week off of running. I will take my anti inflammatories. I will stretch and strengthen my feet. Basically, I will use common sense instead of just sort of vaguely hoping the PF will resolve by magic.

It's difficult not to hope the magic will take care of our issues.

PF hurts! The good news is...if you do all the things you wrote about, it will go away.
Take good care of your kaf regel and it will take care of you.

Oh man, I've been dealing with this off and on for the past 18 months. You're smart to take it seriously. Mine lets up when I wear shoes (with inserts, or my Birkenstocks) ALL THE TIME, in the house, when I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom--all the time. If I decide to go shoe-less for even a day or two, it flares back up, It really sucked in the summertime, but PF is no fun. Good luck!!!

Birkenstocks are my footwear of choice in my house. For awhile, they were the only shoes I could wear without pain. So I wore them to school as well. Which is okay for me because I'm not stylish. For you, this could be some trouble.
