I have been dealing with low-level plantar fasciitis for a year or two. It isn't debilitating, but it does seem to be exacerbated by running. This is unacceptable to me, as there is nothing I'd rather do than run through the trails near my home in Northern California. I stopped running for two months (and did a lot of swimming), but it didn't seem to have any real effect. I just signed up for a trail marathon in December (and will likely use your training program), and I was wondering if your training specifically addresses this problem. From BtR, is sounds as if the author had similar issues.
cv: Running off and on for 20 or 25 years (I just turned 50), but only somewhat seriously for the last few years. Two marathons completed; no danger of qualifying for Boston (unless I'm still running the same speed at 70). Would love to run a 50k in the next year or so.
Thanks for creating this forum.
