st - I've heard of ART and it is supposed to be good, maybe that is something I'll crib from you and look into :

tjs - there is a great granola recipe on the dingos cook blog (i think) from Geo, she had a good one that was floating around here for a while!

I've had Active Release done and it works wonders. Helped when nothing else did on my hamstring; is also helpful on my chronic hip/back/glute problem. Hurts like crazy when it's being done, though.

Someone who has been trained in Active Release Technique should be able to help you--I would think most of them would be familiar with or at least receptive to your Canadian chiro YouTube info. You can find a trained provider here.

Hi everyone,

Haven’t been around in a while. Miss you all. Running a bit, but not enough. I have set a goal to try and do some exercise everyday this month and hopefully the bulk of that will be running.

I had active release done by a Chiro (years ago) for a problem with I think my IT band and it was a huge help. I am in Canada, I wonder if it was the guy I went to

I can't face the wind today...

Anyone heard from Sally Z lately? I thought I had a blog link for her, but I don't see it, and come to think of it, I haven't seen an update from her in ages. Last she reported they were thinking of moving again, right? Any chance that came with a job change for her DH? Ug

THAnk YOu Thank You Thank You!!!!!!!!!

I didnt read the cross-posts until now, as I was in a hurry to get out the door.

I have found several people in my area who do this, so Im going to call around. The thing that struck me about the Youtube guy () is that he described how pain X can lead to Pain Y because of X (and I just started with Pain Y), and then Pain Z, and so on (and I have pain Z now too). When I first expressed my puzzlement to my PT about how this could be happening when Im not even working out, she said "you just never know what will be the straw", and while thats true, I KNOW its all connected, but dont feel like she is addressing the connections, iykwim. From what Ive read about ART and MFR, they address the underlying connections between injuries. I have tightness in so many areas, and I know things are poulling on other things, but it seems that when I stretch I just pull something else, hence the cascade...... bla bla bla

BTW......

Moonshine - APRIL FOOLS Dh is coming for 4 days, nd I seriously considered it, but dont want to spend more time alone with my kids than I already have to :

: I'm so happy to finally be running again!!
post #29 of 1016
hollysmom! :



I just want to throw this out there
If I don't get some space/time to myself in the next day or so I might flip my lid.

I'm not in charge of doing someone else's work at work.
I'm not in charge of putting my dd1 or my dh's laundry down the chute.
I can't control whether some idiot hits and runs on my dh's/our crappy car.
I can't seem to make my mathematical model of chemistry work.
I need some serious brain time.

Can I take Wendy's anniversary trip by myself?

Uh, yeah. I'm an introvert at heart. An extroverted introvert at that.

kerc, sorry mama....hope it helped to put it out there! :

This may be a dumb question...is MFR when they "massage" the problem area HARD, and all the way down the leg or arm? if so, yeah, it hurts like CRAZY when it's being done but helps a ton. I've had that done by my chiro a bunch. I know it's coming when he says, "This is gonna hurt." And then dh and I start whimpering.

back from my PT appt!

a little bit o' this: :

and a little bit o' that:


still. "no running". i think i might lose my finger lickin' mind.

ok, so i love my PT! she's way better than crotchety old ortho guy. she knows him and says 'great surgeon, not the greatest back guy'. awesome.

so, she pushed on me enough where i felt like she knew exactly what was up. she hit all the right spots and made sense all the while. my homework is to do some of those cobra pose things on the floor and ...all together now...work on my poor pathetic pelvic floor muscles! can i get a 'boo-yaw!'

i mean, seriously. i'm honored to be a mother and all, but does it ever eff with my body! i'm marshmallowy, have diastasis, an ovary down, and could barely pull off a kegel successfully. next stop: incontinence!

and this "the jury is still out on that marathon goal of yours"...

From what I understand - YUP But I am one of those who likes pain, so it sounds good to me

That last post was the first on MY NEW COMPUTER Had to wait to put it on the April credit card bill(11 posts until Im a senior member ... 4 1/2 years later...)
post #37 of 1016
No official workout today. Someone did come and look at my house though.
Cleaning it was my workout today! It looks like no one lives here, it's so darn clean!

I think massage sounds great about now. Not one that hurts though!

spin/bike people. My knee hurts in a new place! It hurts above my knee cap. I checked my seat height and that's ok. Is it just from using new muscles? I think cardio wise I'm ok, but my quads aren't used to the new demand I guess?
post #38 of 1016
I'm planning an 11m run on my treadmill tomorrow between the hours of 5 and 7 am. This is my cherished "me" time. I am crazy.

From where the sun now stands, I will never do conferences on back-to-back weekends again. At least my paper's done...
post #39 of 1016
Back from the banned and subbing. Trying to figure out how to get a run in tonight.
post #40 of 1016
I am a pathetic blob of blub.

And that is all I have to say about that.

So.



Should I register for Marine Corps?
