Thank you so much for your support on yesterdays post. These things happen and that’s why we need to think for ourselves and get another opinion or two. Don’t be afraid to fire a doctor. Do what’s best for YOU.
I am hoping to have a loose game plan for recovery soon, but in the meantime I will continue to pool run. I really love it! I leave the pool feeling refreshed and so good for the rest of the day. It also increases circulation which I am hoping means healing those tendons a little faster.
I have been focusing on my form and finally feel like I am making progress. It’s pretty boring reminding myself to keep my back straight, so hopefully it will come naturally soon so I don’t look like a floppy wet noodle spaz flailing in the water.
This week I busted out my bike for a spin. Lu and I cruised down to Fisherman’s Wharf and Lovers Point in Pacific Grove. It felt amazing to move my legs and catch some fresh, salty air and show Lu around.
Then I came home to this extra firm(!) Trigger Point roller which magically appeared on my doorstep. I foresee a long term love/hate relationship with this torture device. Perfect timing!
I’ve tried a couple other brands of rollers, one I liked but another was too soft. Bring on the pain! In a good way, of course.
What are your favorite fitness torture devices?
Have you ever been misdiagnosed?
What race are you training for right now? I really want to hear all about it!
