Here I am at a point I thought I would never be in.
Have been stretching and all before my workouts, but, last month after I upped my mileage to 10k, my left foot came down with plantar fasciitis. I was at first wrongly diagnosed with tendonitis and then since the pain was no better after 2 weeks of no activity, I went to another doc who told me it was plantar fasciitis and asked me to use an insole for my walk and to take another 2 weeks off.
So after my almost 4 week no walking period and I am dying to get back. I am no good with working out at home, especially after doing the walking outdoors by the beach its more tough now, but I am trying to do some workout DVD at home to help me reach my goals.
I hope to start my 5k this sunday, as I really , really miss it and hope to take it at a slow and steady pace and build up my speed from there. (I go at about 6kmph at my fastest pace walking.)
The problem is, the fear of the pain (yes it was cripplingly painful) is unnerving me. I dont want to be stuck again like this. So i am trying to take this slow, but the fear is there.
Any suggestions on what I can do and anyone had similar experiences?
