Rich, Good to see you're still working out. You might try the hot/cold treatments on your foot. Supposed to improve blood flow. I've got a book on foot injuries I'll have to find it and send you the title...
The 1/2 was third one this year, was injured before 1st (these only 1/2's I've done) and not really prepared and ended up walking for a good portion (2:14+). 2nd was in Sept and did well (smart, even), 1:48:34. This one chose wrong shoes, too warm and didn't run smart (didn't use my gu's, barely drank, etc --- lost my car key!). Nutrition is important and just didn't do that right this time.
SF Giants! 2012 World Series Champions!!! Feels good.
Ray, half marathons are more forgiving than their long distance cousins, but if things go wrong they're still a VERY long race, aren't they? I'd forgotten about the one you ran in September, it just shows what you can do when things go right.
I applied heat to my foot yesterday for 20 minutes. I didn't alternate between heat and ice, but will try that if heat alone doesn't work. I will say my foot felt better this morning, but didn't stay that way once I started moving around. I think no matter what I do, progress is going to be real slow.
