During the 1000 miles, I developed horrible heel pain. Plantar Fasciitis. The first thing to try to resolve the symptoms is to stop walking/running. At the time, that wasn’t an option. So, I finished the 1000 miles and then decided that I was going to train to run 5k… Maybe I should have rethought that a little.
After a couple weeks of trying to start running, my feet (heels) were killing me even more. As much as I hate to not finish something that I’ve started, I had to make the decision to stop.
I guess I will try and give my feet time to heel. I’ll get to focus on some other important life things for awhile… and then when the time is right, I’ll get back on track and train to run a 5k.
I’m not quitting the 5k thing forever.. just for now.
