Hank, re running

Posted by Roberta on 6/29/99 at 00:00 (008340)

Definately don't start running too soon. I did that a couple times. I found the best way for me to tell when I was ready was to go out and run 10 -15 minutes. Then the big test was not how I felt that day, but whether or not I could walk the next day. When I felt okay the next day it was okay to try to run a little farther.

Swimming is fun, I would be doing it but my stupid pool closed for 6 months.

Roberta,
Thanks for the tip. When I do resume running I'll start on a
packed sand track at a local junior high school. The area I live
in, Raleigh, also has several trails. Right now there's too much
pain in the heel to try it (although I've cheated and played a little
tennis and softball). I do swim on regular basis but sure miss
being able to do those runs. It's hard when you see other folks
out there running. I should count my blessings, however, and be
thankful I don't have something even more delibitating. Good luck on
your running; hope you get to try another marathon. Drop me a note
sometime if you wish and let me know how things are going (or if
you have any other good tips on getting rid of pf).
best regards, Hank
