12C, mild, broken cloud. A 2.3 mile easy run.  The physio said I can run on soft surfaces but must stop if/when my right foot hurts.  Managed to stay mostly on the grass, found some wet and muddy bits.  Felt unfit.  Had gel inserts in my trainers and a bit of cotton wool between some toes right foot.  

No bad reaction afterwards. Happy with this and it gives me hope. Just need to build gradually and be careful.

4C, cold, overcast. A 4 mile run, easy pace.  I stopped after 250m to take the cotton wool and tape off my foot. It seemed to be pressing on my foot and adding to the problem.  Felt the sore part for most of the run.  Drank 500ml water.

Think I will rest over the weekend, and maybe take a whole week off to see if it’ll accelerate the healing.

9C, mild, dry. A 4 mile run.  Right foot felt quite sore after the weekend long run and I think it is the onset of plantar fasciitis.  So I’ve been foam rollering my calves.  Shortened the planned 60 minute run and used the time left at the end for extra stretching.

Have been rolling my foot on a tennis ball all day under my desk, and booked a physio appt for tomorrow.  Will be able to do the marathon but want as little discomfort as I can while doing so.  Now, will get that chilled bottle from the freezer and roller under my foot while watching TV…

Will flex and adapt the taper schedule to fit my foot health.
