That sounds like a wonderful run, rip! Wish I had some elevation to work on, other than the 7 floors of 39 steps per floor at work, but that will have to do for now.
I've done a big ol' bunch of NUTHIN' the last 3 weeks. Plantar fasciitis in left foot. Heel pain is a booger! But - it's gradually been better and better since I've rested it. I should have been doing some bike work or something. I have a cute little 10-minute HIIT stationary bike workout that I can do in my clinic after work. Would at least keep the heart in some kind of shape, but no. I've been a sloth.
Well, went to my OBGYN and PCP on Monday for my annuals, and my blood pressure was a HORRID 160/90, at both offices! This will not do, not at all.
I blame the salt. It was my 56th birthday on Sunday, and I prefer a big ol' bowl of salty buttered popcorn, and Chuy's Tex-Mex with salty chips and salsa (and creamy jalapeno dip!) over a chocolate birthday cake any day. Really overdid it, so I guess I'll stick to chocolate for a while! LOL
So I guess I better figure out a way to get this foot back in gear, and hit that bike, and will keep track of my BP on this app I just downloaded, and go back to my doc in a month. My daddy died at 64 of a heart attack, lived on cigarettes and coffee. I plan to stick around a little longer than that. (I do drink coffee, I just don't have a cigarette with mine.) I'm 6' and 138 lbs, so I'm not overweight, never have been. Most ever was 170 when I was pregnant, so that doesn't count! LOL
Getting blood work done on Friday, to check cholesterol and etc. Dad did pass on the high cholesterol gene, so I'm hoping that's not as bad as the blood pressure. I really do not want to have to be on meds, but I also do not want a stroke or MI. My job is to rehab others through those things, so I won't be living in denial.
If anyone has any ideas on plantar fasciitis treatments, pass them on. I do know a few things to do. I have high arches, so I stretch my heel cords a lot, just because it feels good. Maybe need to get some new shoes, for work and for running.
Looking forward to Fall, if it ever gets here. I know you're waiting too, KS!
PS. Go Cubs!
