31AUG2015 - Where does the time go? An update is long overdue!

I'm using exercise to improve my overall health. Losing weight will be a nice bonus, but it's not the sole driver. I'm dealing with arthritis in my knees and big toes, as well as plantar fasciitis. Getting up and moving is a challenge, but the alternative is not acceptable.

Let's do this, SparkFriends!!

I can tell you all about fun stuff to do in Boston and surrounding areas. Just let me know. When are you thinking of coming? If plans aren't set, think about coming to Massachusetts to watch the marathon.

Thanks for stopping by my blog Trish.
How is your cycling season going? We have had mild and sunny weather( well that day was sunny, we have been getting a lot of rain too with the mild temperatures) hope you didn't get the snow storm back east.

I'll get a pic up of Hannah and I in the car. She likes to sit in the back seat and rest her head on my right shoulder while I'm driving, occasionally licking my ear. Sweet girl. :)

Yes, Achilles/calf tightness is directly related to plantar fasciitis in most cases. One of the things they're having me do is to do a lot of stretching of both the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles, and those stretches must be done with particular attention paid to form; it's very easy to stretch the Achilles tendon rather than stretching the muscles of the calf, and stretching the calf is the goal.

I'm no MD, but I'm thinking that if the calves are well-stretched, it would take some of the pressure off the Achilles tendon and help relieve some of that ache. Do you have a foam roller? I find that works really well, as well as The Stick. (The brand name one is expensive, but there are plenty of knockoffs to be had.) I used both in PT, and they made everything feel very good. Anything to roll out/massage the calf as well as stretching it can really help break up that fibrous tension and, with any luck, relieve some of that Achilles pain.

I hope that helps..?
