I HAVE PLANTA FASCIITIS…

My plantar fasciitis began after my Disneyland Half Marathon which was 3 months ago, 9/3.

After completing the 13.1 miles I have post race slippers that I use.  I kick off my sneakers and give my feet some air.  As soon as I put my slippers on I felt my feet hurt badly.  I thought nothing of it and continued to walk thinking it would pass.  Three days after the race the pain on my right food did not subside.  Throughout a month and a half the pain in my foot came and went.  I was even able to go on a few short runs around the neighborhood.

After about 7 weeks after my 13.1 run, sometime in the end of October, 10/28 to be exact, my foot was full of pain.  I went to a pumpkin patch and wore short heels, but for a very long period of time and my foot was shot.  I could not stand it.  Also, at this point I had no idea of what was going on with my foot.  I had not gone to the doctor and had no self-cure.

I complained to some coworkers what was going on and said it could be plantar fasciitis and suggested I see a podiatrist.  I would think to myself what could have happened because I have been running for years and know all the basic do’s and don’ts for running.  It all happened during my Disney run weekend back on September 2 & 3.  The 10k on Saturday was perfectly fine, but it was the half marathon on Sunday is where I made a beginner move of a runner.  Biggest running rule…NEVER, NEVER WEAR NIKE’S DURING A RUN.  I know this, rather I should know this.  I have no idea what I was thinking I would be okaying wearing Nike’s for a half marathon.  That’s why basic Asics or Brooks shoes are made!  They are made for functionality.  I wore my Nike’s for the 10k on Saturday and again for the half marathon on Sunday.  HUGE rookie mistake and this is where it all started.

 

I did my own online research on self-cures, but I really wanted to see a doctor.  I made numerous attempts to contact my doctor for a referral to see a foot doctor and it took about 2 weeks before finally getting an appointment to see a podiatrist.  I told another coworker of mine and they suggested I wear arch support and wear comfortable shoes to help my foot heal.  At this point, it is around November so 2 months after my 13.1 race and I was finally able to see a podiatrist.  I told the doctor that I was wearing arch support and roll my foot on a hard ball.  She asked if I wanted a Cortisone shot and I absolutely wanted the inflammatory relief.  The shot hurt like hell!  I was advised to not workout or go to the gym for 3 days and only swim or cycle.

It has been just under a month since visiting the doctor and sometimes I feel like the pain is subsiding, but sometimes the pain comes back.  It really depends on the day.  I continue to wear my arch support everyday and sometimes roll my foot on a ball.  I have not been able to run since 10/21 (from MapMyFitness app), but I frequent the gym often.

My biggest fear in this all is that I will not be able to run for a while or at all.  I want to be able to get back into my running peak, but now I am back at zero.  As much as I hate it I have to wait a little bit longer until I get back to 100% before running again.

I bought this product on Ulta as a part of their 21 Days of #ultabeauty.  It is orifinally $20, but was on sale for $10.  I really want to do some cat eyes and I wanted to try this out.

The packaging from the box to the pen is sleek and smooth.  The box has a snake-like texture and the gold lettering is embossed.  So perfect already.  The pen itself is smooth with a matte finish where you hold the pen.  The cap has a snake-printing so you won’t loose it.

The felt tip pen is flexible so there is no roughness when it is pressed onto the eyelid.

As soon as I put it on my eye it the line is smooth, but does not instantly dry and is definitely buildable if needed.  My biggest “no” for me is after having this on while I am at work for a few hours (which is indoors) I start to get raccoon eyes on the outer part of my bottom eye.  I repeatedly wipe my eye after hours of application.  I do not know if this does not work for me or it is across the board with others.

Does this item work for you or is it just me?  This eyeliner does not work for me and I will be returning it.
