Things are looking up. In the past week I’ve not had above a 1/10 on the ouch scale, and 1/10 for me means I feel like I am standing on gravel, which isn’t really uncomfortable, just strange. After dealing with this for six months it’s nice to no longer dread having to walk anywhere. I attribute the previous six months entirely to overly supportive shoes pushing me on to the outside of my foot.
Phase Two is to start upping my running mileage again. This will start next week. I’m going to aim for frequency over distance to start with.
