It's Back To Work WEDNESDAILIES & I have Just One Question? (Read 331 times)


Will run for scenery.

    Good News, Heidi.

     

    Sometimes the issue really is something tiny.  I had recurring extreme pain in my calves that nearly ended my running career before it started.  My last desperate attempt was to see a chiro that did Active Release Therapy (fancy trademarked name for pokin' around.) One session and Bam! I was fixed.  He said it was just a nerve/vein bundle that was stuck.

     

    Anyway, good luck with the test run.  We're rootin' for ya!

    Stupid feet!

    Stupid elbow!

      Thanks, guys!!!  I appreciate all the kind words.  It has been a rough few days.  I'm happier now - assuming this is the fix.  I'll find out tomorrow night.

       

      RMTB, good luck with that! i track my knee to the right but it's mainly because my adductors are weak.  Hope you find the right balance.

       

      Yes, that is exactly what my PT said.  He said that while he noticed a great improvement in my hip/core strength since I was last in in October, that the root problem is a weak hip issue.  The inserts will help force me to have better form, but what would be ideal would be for me to get strong enough so the issue was self-corrected.  I am doing a TON of hip stuff right now, though - there's not much more I can do on that front for now.  Interesting that you have the same issue, though...I didn't know how common this is.

        I just finished weights and forty-five minutes on the ArcTrainer. I needed it because I slept in this morning and kept eating yesterday. Oy.

                I hope nobody seen me run today!

                i had a whole new outfit a tight red dry fit shirt, felt like I was putting on Spider-Man's suit. Then semi tight black quick dry pants, nice and warm. I wore shorts over them. Finished with my bright red Lunarglides, they stood out like Superman's boots. if anybody I knew stopped me (not that I would stop) all I would have to do is click may heels three times. Lol

                 

                ok at first the shoes really felt good. the support was noticeable and I seemed I was effortlessly moving along. About a mile in, my muscle started stiffening up. Not sure if its from the three days rest or the shoes changing my form. I did stop and walk 20 steps, I could of kept running just was trying figure out the problem.

                 

                I ran 4.75 miles @ 8:14 mp easy

                do have a slight pain in my left cuboid area. Had it before, and thought it was caused from increasing my miles too quick, or my form. I will work on my form again and try to make these shoes work for me.

                  I'm just doing inner thigh workout.  I don't think I need any inserts.  Hope they work for you.
