Since I came out of lurking to post on NRR today I figured I should post a daily. Although I'm STILL not running yet. I hurt my knee in early November, and my brother set me up with a PT friend of his who is trained in FMS (Functional Movement Systems). Since I've had various overuse injuries over several years, he thought I could use it. So, I'm retraining some sleeping muscles, and fighting age, and it's taking forever! An hour or so of exercises every day.
But, I can feel the benefits in so many ways, so I'm trusting the process and sticking with it. I was almost ready to start really running and was doing some things most people would do as warm-ups (skipping, sideways running, karaoke) and some short pickups. Two weeks ago I slipped on wet grass and pushed off my right foot when it was out of position. Felt a pull in my AT and calf and figured I was done for months and back to square one.
But, no! I'm stronger now and it has healed very quickly. With the help of a PT visit, massage, tape, stretching, etc. So it was a small set-back, but I'll survive. Can't wait to start posting real runs on here again. Someday.
