Yesterday at practice we did a 1.5 mile warm up, 6x600s fast, and 1 mile cool down. I felt pretty dead after taking a few days off for Easter and a trip to NYC, but I got through it.
BUT THE EXCITING THING IS…my foot didn’t hurt at all for the first time in a month!!! For those of you who have had plantar fasciitis, you know it’s very frustrating to deal with and that the pain it causes can suck the joy out of running.
I’m so happy to feel healthy again. Hopefully I feel good again at practice today.
THERE IS NO BETTER FEELING THAN SUCCEEDING. Hitting that PR, finding that new muscle, running that extra mile. It is amazing. Blissful. Perfect. Keep going. It’s going to happen!!!!

Hello! We strength train somewhat inconsistently with our teams at practice, but I usually strength train at home. I know Courtney does too. I don’t usually have a set routine that I follow but I like to do bicycle crunches, v-sits, push ups, planks, side planks, 6 inches, side crunches, wall-sits, etc. If I’m at a gym I’ll use the weight machines (especially the inner thigh machine!) but if I’m at home I usually just do bicep curls and tricep dips.
Sorry my answer wasn’t too specific, but I hope it helps! If you’re just starting strength training, try to do 3 sets of 10 of each exercise and don’t start out too fast/intense so you don’t get injured.
