Flirting

You're expecting an exciting post based on the title...ha! unfortunately what is flirting with me needs to get lost;-)

Let's see training season has been great overall...I haven't had an injury since my doozy of an IT band back in '05. So, why the heck is plantar flirting with me now. See what I mean this flirt needs to get lost. I realize my right calf is uber tight and the good news about being a student again I rarely 'have' to wear high heels anymore. Ignore my blog photo. I'm rolling the heck out of my calf on a very tiny ball. This ball is just one size larger than a golf ball and just a tad softer. What I'm getting at is this ball makes me quiver it hurts so bad to roll on. Regardless I am rolling on this teany weany size of a ball almost non-stop...so why is my foot hurting more??? I've made the executive decision not to go to tomorrow morning's work-out and take Friday off as well. I'm hoping to get my calves massaged while I'm at it. Me not running 2 days in a row is not a pretty sight. You may want to steer clear, just sayin.'

And I thought flirting was supposed to be fun...

Put dem footsies up and RELAX. You can run again in a few days.

Good idea to rest it girlie. We did miss ya this morning! The best thing Steve ever had me do (other than rolling) was strides barefoot to stretch things out. Sorry it is bugging you...I know that is painful. And yeah, I will be avoiding you by late Friday...hahaha

you're doing everything right. rolling [try the foam roller, too, if you're not already], massage and rest. a couple days will be good for you.

as far as the GOOD type of flirting goes?

wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more, say no more

I thought you met a HAWT guy from flirting.

ugh! so sorry to hear about your pf. that's no fun. massaging calves usually helps. hope you feel better soon. I know what you mean about not running....it's our therapy.

Hi Katie,
I'm a friend of Joey's, you and I met briefly on one of my visits to Austin. I spent a year dealing with PF, but was able to work around it and still race. I even trained for New York with it. It was entirely unpleasant, but doable. The Trigger Point products were an enormous help. www.tpmassageball.com If you want to chat about how I dealt with PF, just email Joey and he'll pass it on to me. Feel better!
