Plantar fasciitis is a condition caused by drastic or sudden increases in mileage, poor foot structure, and inappropriate running shoes, which can overload the plantar fascia, the connective tissue that runs from the heel to the base of the toes, resulting in heel pain. The plantar fascia may look like a series of fat rubber bands, but it’s made of collagen, a rigid protein that’s not very stretchy. The stress of overuse, overpronation, or overused shoes can rip tiny tears in it, causing heel pain and inflammation, . plantar fasciitis.
So I was looking at photographs of myself from a few years ago. I used to chew gum daily (and was unfortunately also a night-time clencher). My face was so much more attractive! I always had a strong jawline. Unfortunately I have quite severe TMJD (yes I even had it back then when my face looked a whole lot better). I’ve been wearing a “repositioning splint” only at night, and my jaw muscles have definitely weakened/atrophied. While it’s great I’m not clenching as much, it’s definitely taken a toll on my looks. It also forces my mouth slightly open and it’s quite uncomfortable to keep my mouth properly closed. I’m positive it had changed my tongue posture as well. I knew my face looked different now but I couldn’t quite work out what it was (obviously I’m a bit older but seems a drastic change). Thanks so much reading your website has given me more awareness!
I am also an old user of ST3 and the training load plugin - so I am also trying to understand the new model and see how it relates to the TSB model. First of all: negative TSB happens - also if you are well trained. I know my negative TSB number where I have pushed it to the limit, and most likely will get ill. I think the biggest challenge here is that people have been used to the TSB model to plan and predict, using either ST3 or some of your competitors software, and a lot of papers, tutorials, books uses that model. The 7/42 model can be configured in ST3 and it does not take a scientist, just you knowing your own body and a little experimenting. The 12/21 model seems a little strange from my perspective. Fatigue does roll off faster is my experience. Changing the zones is not the solution, since you use the zones for other part of the program, and would like to have the correct HR and PWR zones so you can see how much time you spend in each and so on. So HR and PWR zones only for the sake of calculating the the effort (which you would create with smaller intervals than your normal zones, I would expect) would be the best way to proceeded IMHO. But still, I do find many very nice features in the online version of SportTracks, and some overviews are better than in ST3, but there are still some years of programming ahead before I would skip the ST3 - if ever. With plugins, it is a far more professional analysis tool - but please keep up the good work. The online version is fairly new, and stuff is planned to be implemented, so it will get better. So for now they complement each other. The planing and follow up is done using Training load plugin and then I will try to see how it relates to the new model in Sporttracks. The last comment would be, please don't hide all the details (like configuration of 12/21), since advanced users would like as much configuration as possible to fit the tool to them and their body instead of fitting them and their body to the tool :-) But in general, I am positive about the tool and will continue to use it together with ST3.
