Heel Update

Other people may not have high expectations of me, but I have high expectations for myself.-- Shannon Miller
Today has been kind of a lazy day. Although in getting up and walking around, so far, I have not felt the bruising feel on my heel that has been indicating somethings wrong. I've iced and stretched it and been to the gym for a bike ride. My intents since I put myself on non-running rest, have been to run tomorrow, and I'm going to evaluate it and see how it feels. I might go just an easy 1 or 2, take Monday off and shoot for a little longer one on Tuesday...taking it easy for the next week or two and slowly build back up. It's bothered me, of course, to not run, but knowing this is best for me has allowed me to work through it and maintain a good attitude about it. Because seriously, what is a negative thought going to solve anyway?? Hopefully the positive thinking has kept me in good form, body and spirit. On a side note, based on the bike at the gym, I've gone about 100 miles biking this week.

OK, I'm behind on my blog reading! I'm so sorry the heel has been bugging you. You may have already been asked, but is it possibly plantar fasciitis? Mine felt like a bruised heel. I roll the arch of my foot over a golf ball and that helps loosen things up. Happy weekend and way to go on the biking! :)
