As someone who had 2.5 years of Plantar Fasciitis recovery, I can share your pain and frustration. It is a stubborn one for sure!

For now, check out your options. You may be able to defer the marathon until next year, if it ends up that it isn't going to happen this year. If you do get to run it, you may also want to adjust your time goals, as taking 2-3 weeks off of training will put you back some.

I'm sorry this has happened so close to the race. I hope that you recover well.

emoticon I fear this may be the end of my training for the Chicago Marathon in October. I have a type of plantar fasciitis in the center of my arch which apparently is harder to heal. Yippee! I have exercises that I intend to do religiously, and an apparatus to stretch my calf/bottom of my foot twice a day for a half hour each time. I was optimistic when I left the Doctor's office this afternoon that it's possible to still do the Marathon, but 2-3 weeks without running. I am not to walk more than 2 miles for the next couple of days. I will work hard strength training & stretching and hope that the possibility is still there......

Completed 2-Chicago Marathons, 4-Rock N Roll Half Marathons, 1-Monster Dash Half Marathon, 2-Soldier Field 10 Milers, 2-Shamrock Shuffles & multiple 5K & 10K races.
