Bike ponce

thought not

I'll have you know I now have about 2 square inches more clear living room floor and one square foot of sparkly clean Kitchen surface

haile - could be your IT band, cos it might be tight as a result of TLD, try stretching it out twice a day - hold the stretch for 30 seconds *3

i am now qualified to give you this information as i have had confirmation that i passed the sports cert through this am

Congratulations Lurker

Congratulations on your news Lurker, well done.

It could be my IT band but i was having a bit of trouble with it for a few weeks before TLD. I went to see the physio and he located a point right at the top of my calf, just behind my knee to the right.

I shall stretch my IT and calf. Probably just being a bit of a poof about it!

Well you are a bike ponce now so yes probably being a poof as well ;-)

awww thanks maddy.
05/08/2006 at 15:06
Maddy, have you managed to get any further with your cramp issues?
05/08/2006 at 15:09
Unfortunately not.

Swan Pool is a bit tight on safety and my club isn't registered down there - I had got round it due to a lifeguard ex but he had to train on Wednesday so I couldn't swim. I am planning on a 90 swim without a wetsuit first to see what happens

Fingers crossed that you get it sorted.

I suppose you will be checking on your salt/electrolite intake. Banana's are supposed to be good too, potassium.

Its hard to know what to do fisrt - one thing at a time to figure it out or as has been suggested everything first and then cut individual things out - hoping to do a half at the back end of September finance and transport dependant

Gawd lummee, you go away for the weekend and get back to:
2 rest days
5 mile run easy
5 mile run steady
6 mile run slow
1 mile jog 5 mile fartlek 1 mile jog
2hr long run

I've got a tweaked something too, so this week is complete rest (maybe a swim), and let the cartilage in my kneecap grow back, ten I can come out to play again.

No news on the 'tat' fruity! I'm officially rubbish.

And let that knee heal properly, and with reference to 'Coach's' marathon plan, if you miss a few days make sure you cram them in before next weeks schedule!

S'okay, I've got croc working on summat.

Coach's marathon plan is all fine and good, but I don't have a marathon at the end of it...

sounds interesting.

I've done a few scribbles using the BCT wheel, but it looks carp at the moment.

And where to put it, thats the question?

Lurker, what is your favourite IT stretch?

Not too sure how good mine is, i just stand side-on to a wall, cross my leg behind the other and lean towards the wall.

Get proper massage for the IT band - it makes a hell of a difference. Get her (or him) to run their forearm up and 'strip' the band and the muscles it's connected to, right the way up from the ankle to the hip. And try to stretch off the hip flexor too as it can tighten the IT band..
07/08/2006 at 13:59
what stretch do you do for the hip flexors?

Bottom on this page
And I don't so much do it as... well, should do it but are too lazy.

But then I'm a cretin.

Got my allpix pic through yesterday - looks good, much better than I thought it would look with the proofs. He's cropped it nicely and sorted the colour balance. I phoned them up, told them my trouble with the website timing out, and they mailed out the one I wanted with an invoice. Paid by cheque, all fine and dandy.

Going to do a montage thingy with that and my race number in the same frame. Actually my spare race number - I binned the actual one as it smelt like a 3 day old corpse. And yes, I do know what that smells like.

Just need to find a frame big enough, and a wall that is in an incredibly prominent place...
