Hi. I consider myself somewhat of a "seasoned" runner as I have been running for over ten years now. I'm not a great runner but enjoy doing races from 5K to half marathon (even did one full marathon). Seemed as though I was frequently battling injuries. Last October, I developed a bad case of plantar fasciitis that I could not seem to shake. Read "Born to Run" and tossed my orthotics and other myriad of devices that were supposed to "cure" me. It was winter time, so I ran on a treadmill barefoot and after a couple of sessions, the plantar fasciitis disappeared. As the weather broke, I started running outside in just an old pair of racing flats as I couldn't find VFF'S anywhere. I believe I ramped up the mileage too quickly. Finally got a pair of VFF's and started running a little bit completely barefoot and a little in VFF's, but mostly in the flats still. Wound - up with a stress fracture in my second metatarsal. I have been sitting out for about 7 weeks now. I think I'll be ready to start - up again in another week, but I am more than a little concerned about getting injured again.
Would one of the training plans aid me in the transition back to running, and if so, which one considering I've been out of action for some time now?
Thanks in advance for your advice.

Joe D.
