Catnip’s Training Log – May 2015

JB was so excited for my comeback from plantar fasciitis! Not.
JB was so excited for my comeback from plantar fasciitis! Not.

After running 0 steps in April due to plantar fasciitis, things started looking up in May. My foot was feeling better and the higher temperatures and longer days had me starting to feel the urge to get moving. Finally, one day at home during JB’s nap I stepped on the treadmill. It was just a 10 minute trot because he woke up quickly, but my foot felt fine and there was no pain later in the day either. Commence the comeback!

I'm a 20-year veteran of competitive running, USATF certified coach, mom of a toddler -- and still trying to set PRs. I write about training from 5k to marathon, motherhood and competitive running, and the elite side of the sport. The 5k is my favorite race (16:56 PR) but I've got a score to settle with the marathon.
