I did get outside to run, I was going to do 8K...and it was going great (despite the heat) and then whammo, I started to feel it in my heel. was so disappointed, but I stopped and walked probably the last kilometer to home. Today, it is fairly stiff. This happens to me a couple of times a year, I wish I knew if there was something I could do to prevent it. I do stretch after running...so who knows.

I started running about 7 yrs ago, am totally addicted to it now. It kills me when I can't go. Just the past couple of summers I have started doing a few races. I use to hate running..if someone had told me years ago that I would be running in my 30's and 40's I would have laughed!

Anyway, glad that you're back at it!

Happy to hear you are back. I am just getting back to running after a 4 year absence. I have been back for a few weeks.

I hope you can get outside and run. I am in the midwest and it has been really hot here as well.

After a week off of running, I am finally back in the game :) Ran on my treadmill yesterday. Figured that if my leg did start to bother me, I could just hop off and that would be it....wouldn't have to walk home for a mile or two.

All went well yesterday, so I tried it again today, and yay...never bothered me.

I would like to run outside tomorrow, if its not too hot. We've had some pretty hot weather the past few days, much hotter than what I am use to. Maybe I can get out there early and beat the heat.

We'll see...
