If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, you might think perhaps you should rest your feet, but it’s actually better for you to keep on the move. Plantar fasciitis affects the band of tissue connecting your heel bone to your toes, and can cause stabbing pains when walking. A treatment for it is to keep moving, but make sure you don’t overdo it. Keep your mileage and speed down if you begin experiencing pain, and place an ice pack under your foot for 15 minutes after you’ve finished walking. An alternative is to roll a frozen bottle of water under your foot for 10 to 15 minutes instead. Adding support to your foot can also help, so using an insole in your shoe or wrapping your foot with athletic tape is also recommended.

On the one hand, the transcendence of Federer and Nadal over the rest of the field should not be used to debunk or otherwise devalue their achievements. They have been that good for that long. Their greatness has effectively blotted out the sun for an entire generation of would-be major title havers. On the other hand, I just want to watch some better tennis matches with a little more regularity. Granted, if they can deliver that kind of Australian Open final once a year, consider my mouth sealed shut—Fedal forever, until we’re all dust.
