Through some simple self-diagnosis with the help of my friend, Google, I've come to the conclusion that I've been suffering a moderate case of plantar fasciitis the past 3 weeks or so in my right foot. This is somewhat disturbing as I've only recently received word that I'll be attending OCC-196. I guess it is fortunate that it is approximately six months out which should allow adequate time for recovery. Now I've read up up all the self-treatment regarding icing/taping/massaging/stretching and the like, but I was wondering if anyone on the forum has had any experience with this condition. Specifically, did you keep running while suffering and simply continued to treat the problem until it dissapeared? Or did you have to resort to a break in running? I'm hoping I'll be able to continue my normal routine, but I don't want to exacerbate a problem with OCC coming up. In other words, am I going to have to spend the next month or so on the stationary bike/in the pool to maintain my fitness in order to guarantee I'm healthy when Oct. comes around?
