Hi everyone,
I had plantar fasciitis in heel last year while training for a marathon and was able to run, due to stretching before getting out of bed, icing after run, etc. This year have it again, but seems to be in the ball of my foot and left side of foot. I can hardly walk after two weeks. I am wearing orthodics but still am having pain. Haven't run :(. Has anyone experienced anything like this? What was the recovery period? AND, with 16 weeks to go until marathon - what would be the minimal amount of time I would need to get back up to speed and be able to run the marathon? I am so frustrated! Thanks for any comments.

liddy
