how did you recover from plantar fasciatis? I got it over a year ago, and it got really bad. I tried everything (night splints, shoes inserts)...but what really helped was stretching of the calf. Once I started doing P90X Yoga, the pain in the mornings went down from 8/10 to 2/10. Some mornings I don't even notice it.
I'm a slow starter too, so I like to do either Yoga or Ab Ripper X right before I leave for tennis courts. It wakes me up and I'm ready to go from the first point.
