  • I have Plantar Fasciitis plus Neuropathy! For the Plantar Fasciitis I went through about 15 physical therapy sessions, stretching, soaking, etc. None of these helped much until I got Orthotic inserts! Big difference!!! - 8/27/2014 11:33:37 AM

    I just started one of the Sparks programs, 5 weeks to a 5 K. I am taking my dog out on the walk/run program. I feel guilty if I leave him behind. - 12/22/2013 6:19:37 PM
  • I just started jogging. I think I'll rest tomorrow and just lift weights. I do ice and take iboprofen. - 8/26/2013 8:20:15 PM
  • Right now I have three of the five injuries and I don't run - I got them from issues I have with arthritis and just plain walking!
    Coach Nicole has a video using the foam roller for a releasing the tightness of ITB - very helpful but hurts like heck! - 8/26/2013 3:31:19 PM
  • I started running and was fine until after my first 5K. After the run, I moved my knee wrong, and felt a sharp pain in my knee and hip. It lasted a couple of hours, and my knee was very tender after it. I let my leg heal for a few weeks and after I stopped feeling any pain I tried running again, and sure enough the pain came back. So I gave up running. But every now and again my knee will hurt. So I asked my Dr and the response was, "Yeah that happens to everyone who runs. I suggest you try other activities." (which was not at all helpful) - 8/26/2013 1:09:20 PM
