Heel problem update

I still have no idea what the problem really is. But, after two days off, a light workout and another day off... it feels a lot less tight. That's not to say that it is totally healed or that I'm not going to go to the doctor's.... But, I'm encouraged by the fact that it feels better with rest. I still have my Thursday appointment and I'll know better then. I also want to know if I need orthotics for my flat feet. I feel like I am demolishing my feet with this running obsession. Maybe I just don't have the right equipment.

doesn't it suck knowing that something's not right but not sure why? I think you're smart going to the dr since it's persisted. I'll be interested to see what you find out. Good luck, and Happy New Year.

It sure does Topher. I think, if I get the green light from the doc, I'm gonna back off to 4 days a week instead of 5. It might just be an overuse thing.

Have a fun night tonight. The wife and I are hanging out with another married couple and just playing games/watching movies. I've got the Simpsons on my Netflix queue too. I'll tell you what I think.

Happy New Year...
