Plantar Fasciitis? … You must be “defeeted”!

runningfeetI’ve been a runner for a few years now, and nothing smells like poop more than Plantar Fasciitis!  I hate it!  There is no other injury that drags down my training more than this pain in the foot!

I have found something, though, that works wonders, and I wanted to share it with you here.  If you’ve been struggling with this problem, stretching, rolling the bottom of your foot with a golf ball, and plain old resting all work very well to get you on the road to recovery.

But, in order to actually stay on the road while you’re in the midst of a training program for a race, you might want to try taping with this specific type of tape.  It’s called kinesiology tape.

My particular brand of tape is called Rock Tape.  I recommend it, but I would use another brand, too.  I’m not picky about the name.

The trick, though, is the proper application of the tape.  In order for it to be effective, you have to put it on correctly.

This video is a great guide!  Have a look and, if you’re feeling it, tape up and get back out there.  The world awaits!
