So, here are the books that I ended up buying. Right now, I'm in the middle of another book (non-running) and I want to finish that before I dive into these books. I can't wait!
Yesterday, I did end up going for a swim. I kept it very casual and only swam 1200 meters. It felt good to go out there, get some sun and stretch my arms, legs and muscles. I'm glad I did it!
This morning, I got up (a very difficult thing to do this morning) at 4 to head to the gym. I noticed yesterday, a pain in my heel and was limping most of the day. I've had a slight pain for a little while, but it wasn't a big deal. When I was on the tm this morning, the pain started to come back. My stride was normal (no limping or anything), but I decided it was best for my heel to only run 4 miles and only 11 minutes on the stairs (I had 6 miles on 20 minutes planned today).
I did some research and I may need some additional cushion in the shoe, ice it and take some nsaids. That's what I'll do and see if it helps. I notice the pain mostly after I had been not moving very much (which I barely moved yesterday) and after it stretched out, it got better.
Has anyone had anything like this on their heel? Any suggestions (before a dr. appointment)?
