    My brother, I have the same issue and it's my calves. They get extremely tight. I use this https://hyperice.com/hypervolt and I hammer both my calves until they are relaxed. I also found this video which I can attest to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72p58Iy6u7M. I also try to keep flexing my feet as often as possible. I will do calf raises all the time, at random times, when standing. That being said, my calves are extremely muscular and strong compared to the average dude.

    a tennis ball or golf ball helps too. rolling that under your feet. the thing that help me the most - hurt more than i can tell you without words that don't belong on a public forum - was regular, really good, hard foot massage. somebody with some reflexology experience that can find the little spots that felt like beads and then just work those loose. it hurt but i helped a lot.

    Brontus camwynya. Physio therapist feels i’ll Be 5-6 weeks. I am doing the foot specific DAREBEE workouts, plus the stretches & exercises he has given me. He did not mention orthotics. I’m hoping I will not need. There are lots of walking trails where you could bike safely. Plus we have a nautilus stationary bike in the basement. I do have options for cardio.

    Aw, hell, plantar sucks. I wound up going to the podiatrist for mine. I do the stretches, I use the foam calf roller, I have the inserts- oh, and I got a pair of Orthofeet slippers to wear when I'm not in my everyday shoes. They help, support-wise.

    Any chance you have access to / an area that's safe to ride a bike? I got a lot of cardio in on a bike when my feet were hurting most.

    You got plantar specific insoles PETERMORRIS966 ? I'm actually just recovering from plantar fasciitis. I went and bought plantar fasciitis specific insoles for my footware, massaged every so often, stretched every so often, set my feet on ice every so often. I also went and bought diabetic approved shoes and put plantar insoles in them. From the start of any kind of treatment of PF, it'll be several months before they're healed. I'm at about 5 or 6 months and I'm still having issues...I can't run anymore. You could do sitting down exercises, like punches and that. Modified pushups. Anything where you don't have to be on you feet or anything you can modify to not be on your feet.

    Sorry to hear this, Peter. Plantar fasciitis is a real drag. Do you have appropriate rehab exercises to help it heal? (They do help, in my experience.)

    Plantar Faciitis

    My feet have been getting sore over the last week. Yesterday I realized it’s Plantar Faciitis. This morning I can hardly walk. So much for Day 1 of Cardio Trim Run Program. Oh well I will find Workouts I can still do to keep on my fitness journey.
Working...
