|Running has been a source of many memorable experiences|
all over the world.
Erring on the side of caution
After completing the run, I spent some time Googling my symptoms, but couldn't positively match them to an injury. Most arch queries related to running suggested plantar fasciitis, but I don't think that is the problem (hopefully). I can't really say why, but I sense that if I give it total rest for a couple of days it may repair enough for me to run without pain. I may be wrong, but I've decided to give it a shot and have two days of minimal activity with no running and then resume running on Friday. Managing injuries is the most difficult thing most runners face, and as discussed in a previous blog post, it sometimes only takes a few steps to go from "fit" to "out for three weeks", or worse. And there's no "do overs".
