Hey all, I have always had an issue with plantar fasciitis as a runner. Whenever I manage to build up my mileage and quality running, it comes back and I have to stop. Last year I decided to pick up a pair of Bikila's and found to my delight that my "barefoot" form is so different that I don't get PF. So I started running a lot more, even ran a race a month through January. When I got a stress fracture. Twice I have tried to restart the running at drastically reduced pace/mileage and last time I felt I was getting another stress fracture. This time I don't want that to happen. What would you think is the safest way to transition as a dramatically deconditioned runner? All the advice I find online assumes you already have a mileage base built up. For goodness sake, I'm only running 10-20 miles a week during these last 2 attempts! How low must I go?
