    2018: Mendocino Coast 50k - April 21

      Well I'm back with the same issue.  Around October it completely subsided and I was only dealing with some low level nerve issues.  I backed off on the pigeon pose wondering if it was creating impingement on the nerve.  Doing that caused my hip to get tight again, and I think that pulled everything out of whack.  So now I'm back to dealing with HHT and nerve stuff.

       

      I found a good sports chiro who introduced me to cupping.  That was a big help with the nerve issue.  I've ordered my own set of cups to use at home every few days since I can't afford to go to him every day. I should have them tomorrow and we'll see how it goes.

       

      Trying to get back into my PT for some exercises and to discuss the HHT issue  . . . . and the fact that I'm signed up for my first ultra in 2 year and come hell or high water, I'm running it.    . . . . . we'll see how he takes the news.

      2018: Mendocino Coast 50k - April 21

        Well that sucks. For me, my upper hammys feel pretty darn good now but if you would ask me if I am cured, I would say no. I don't take my "feel good" status for granted andI still act like I have HHT and do a lot of negatives for hammys, glute work, hip work, pre hab before runs. I had a minor re-occurrance after a half last year. Persistant pain lingering months is no longer an inflammatory issue. In the offseason I increased rehab for 8 weeks doing a lot more of negative resistance hamstring work and more isolated glute work. The first 4 weeks my hammy hurt more but then it turned around and by 8 weeks I was pretty good. All my races including a half I have finished healthy. Negatives help realign muscle fibers. You can't do enough strength and core work.

         

        As I type I am sitting on an infrared heating pad to warm up my hammys and glutes before my long run. It has become lart of my lifestyle. My motivation is that I never want to get back to the point that every waking hour or every time I sit I am reminded of my issue. It really is a miserable condition. It takes work and time.....good luck to you.

          It has been a pain in my butt since the 1st week of February. 12 weeks of no cardio. Finally went to a chiropractic . He adjust my hip. After the 3rd visit in 10 days I walked 17 miles of the Pro Football HF marathon and ran the last 7 miles. I walked the Bear Lake Trifecta(8 hours) Less than 100  training miles since Feb. The plan is to go to the chiropractor at least twice a month. Going to order a foam roller today. Just finished a 5 mile run walk.

          Run until the trail runs out.
