I am a slug this week. It's not entirely under my control though. ITBS and plantaar faciitis have decided that they like me alot and want to hang around. So, I go back and forth. Long runs once a week or 2-3 short speed runs. Long is nice for the slower pace and building distance, but without the speed I won't meet my time goal. Which one will be better for recovery and healing? With the Top of Utah Half only 4 weeks away, I'm a little concerned. I know I can do the distance, but how will I feel at the end? It's a super fast course and I want to take advantage of that and get not just a pr, but a kick butt time!
So, it's back to basics. Exercises prescribed by the PT, ice, rest. I really want to go to PT, but right now there isn't much time and I only have 3 visits left that will be covered by insurance.
So, what do you guys do when you are nursing injuries and still trying to train? I need help! I do my foam roller and have green super feet. (love them) but I am worried I won't get better without help or total rest.
