Healing Power of Golf Balls

My right arch has been just a bit too painful to run lately, even walking is noticeably uncomfortable. I ran into a friend and fellow XC runner from high school though, Jake Jamison, and he told me to roll a golf ball under my foot to stretch out my arch. Apparently he learned this from Coach Nott (our awesome XC coach from HS), and just within 10 minutes of him telling me this... another friend of mine, Ken Ross comes by with a couple golf balls and gives me one. I tried it last night, and think it helped! I've been doing ice, advil, resting, and some stretching, but I think this helped the most so far. My running friend Jerry said I've probably been straining it too much by never running on my heels, so I've started doing that more and hope to put in some good milage this week yet, instead of just situps, pushups and weights.
