Seriously though, I sat around all weekend (ok, I didn't really sit around I had to work and other things I had to do...but MENTALLY I sat around!) feeling sorry for myself and worrying about my feet when I could have been proactive and started making a plan.
By the way, my feet feel better. I'm still really struggling with knowing what SORE feet feel like compared to Plantar Fasciitis-coming-back-feet. I'm going to just have to take it slow and get over it. I was thinking yesterday how amazing it will feel to conquer this hurdle I have in front of me.
So, I have decided that I possibly need more recovery time than the average person. Hopefully this will change, but instead of inducing more injury, I have decided to go way slower than I would like by running twice a week instead of 3x. I have tried running less mileage but 3x and that has not worked when I start to up the mileage, so this time I'm going to run less but more. Got that? ;) Run twice a week, cross train 2 other days, and then still up my mileage on one of the runs. Friday's run.
I made up a quick calendar for the rest of March and I have it hung up. I will find a better calendar and decide if there should be any changes at the end of the month. I don't want to be rigid if it's not going to work and I'm leaving my mileage for the long runs open for now because I'm unsure of how slow or fast I will be able to add miles at this point. Slow and steady, right? :)
