Analysis: Went to Mika for treatment on the left foot.  Due to the slow recovery rate, the diagnosis has evolved into a split tear of the plantar fascia or FHL tendon.  This is bad news.  Very bad.  This injury could take up to 6 MONTHS to heal.  Bad news.  I can just feel myself getting more and more out of shape which every passing day.
Good news: I can participate in activities that keep the heel flat like the bike and elliptical.  Good news: I'm already 2 months into this debacle.  Mika also gave two suggestions: 1) a slight heel lift to place in my shoe and 2) a "sole" cushion insert that will allow for better cushion under the arch/heel where I'm feeling the pain.

so sorry to hear you're injured...i actually came on here to ask if you wanted to participate in a karhu wear test/data collection session next week but it sounds like you're out! i'm still looking for two guys who wear size 9 who would be willing to participate in a 45-minute session on next wednesday the 4th at the boston athletic club. if you know of anyone could you please email me (or have them email me) at it would be a huge help. thanks and best wishes for your recovery!
