I have this plantar fasciitis thing grinding me down and the image at left (from myfootdocs.com) says it all. I have a micro tear or worse in the "thick fibrous connecting tissue" in my right foot. I had this years ago and it can hang around for a long time. Some of the pain is low grade and of course, I was running though it. Was actually glad to keep it partially at bay and take that Frosty finish.
I'll try to curb my running a bit, but how realistic is that?
I'm a creature of cyclical motion and that said, I'm pulling back on my energy and protein bar consumption (2+ per day) and migrating back into homemade bread. Noted that Sam's Club sells nice size bags of flax seed for a great price, so I'll go 2/3 whole wheat and 1/3 flax, with some olive oil and nuts or dates thrown in for that yummy effect. Think the calorie count will go to my advantage and I'll be one step closer to a non-processed diet.
I'd like to feature additional information on master competitor diets...what are you eating out there? Share some thoughts and I'll post a few things for readers to "digest."
