tear in the right medial fasciaPosted by Tricia on 8/27/03 at 10:25 (128143)
I've apparently been training (running) too much, but anyway, 3 weeks ago after a half marathon I could barely walk. THe sports doctor diagnosed me with plantar fasciitis, put me in a soft boot, and sent me to physical therapy. I saw him again yesterday, and after he told me my NYC marathon hopes are over for this year, told me I had a tear. How does that happen? I don't remember feeling it happen. DOes this take longer to heal?

YES, It can tear even under low stress like walking. You can tear it without a noticable taumatic event.
