Weight loss/ lifting/ dieting thread

Recommended Posts

I have been working some hella hours and my recovery time has been diminished. I broke down and paid a tiny Asian lady to beat the shit out of me for 90 minutes. She walked a mile on my back, ass, legs, arms and shoulders. Then she contorted my skeleton from my toes to my head until everything cracked and stretched. A good part of this work over was fairly painful because I had knots everywhere, but I feel like a new man today. Woke up with no body aches, except for my feet. Plantar fasciitis is looming in the left foot. I can feel that all day, every day. Today it was the least noticeable in long time.

Yes it does. I was very happy when she stopped hurting me.

Get fitted inserts.  With daily stretches, they will mitigate the plantar fasciitis pretty quickly.

I have them in my boots, but I bought a new pair and have not been home long enough to remember.

If you don’t already, get a tennis ball(or any ball that’s roughly the same size). Use it to roll along the bottom of your foot for 10 minutes or so at a time. Gradually introducing more and more pressure as it allows. Do this a few times a week(the more the better) and it’ll be feeling better.

I have a spikey massage ball I picked up at the local runners shop. It does a great job. 10 minutes of that beauty and I feel decent. I just have a heavy load of tools I huck around all day, every day. It is starting to take a toll and I need to be mindful of my personal well being. 

I had PF when I was in my early 20s. It isn't that bad, yet. It took PT and 3 cortisone injections to cure that spell. Not interested in another round.

I used to have PF really bad.  It made me quit athletic sports.  I had a physical therapist diagnose the issue and give me some daily stretches.  They were similar to the ones listed on this webpage:

These excercises coupled with shoe inserts eliminated my PF.  I picked up running half marathons shortly after recovering.  I haven"t had issues in years, but I still use the inserts in all of my shoes & boots.
