Totally Fit Spark Plug: Plantar Fasciitis and Impulsive Decisions

Hey Champion,

Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain in runners, eventually affecting 10 percent of the running community. While running, the plantar fascia works with the Achilles tendon to store and return energy.

Because of its powerful attachment to the base of the toe, the plantar fascia stabilizes the inner forefoot as forces peak during push off. Unlike bone spurs and stress fractures of the heel, plantar fasciitis tends to produce pain during the push-off phase while running, not during initial contact.

A simple way to tell if you have plantar fasciitis versus a heel spur/stress fracture is to walk on your toes: heel spurs and heel stress fractures feel better while you walk on your toes, while plantar fasciitis typically produces more discomfort when you shift your weight onto your toes.

Day 1: Jesus went into Jerusalem and into the temple. So when He had looked around at all things, as the hour was already late, He went out to Bethany with the twelve. Mark 11:11

Day 2: Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany. Mark 11:12. So they came to Jerusalem. Then Jesus went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. Mark 11:15

Day 1: Jesus only observed.
Day 2: Jesus cleared the temple.

Exercise of the Week: Stop making impulsive decisions and do what Jesus did; observe, wait and then act.
