To be fair to the private physio I saw she was about 90 mins away from where I live and she spent all the time doing manipulation which seems to have corrected the misalignment problem. I could go back to her but (a) it's expensive and (b) she is some distance away. Hence, the reason she suggested I tried to see a local NHS physio. I don't have a problem with the expense so much so would like to see if I can get a program from someone who knows their stuff. Unfortunately where I live I can't call upon the services of a PT or pilates instructor and so must look elsewhere. If anyone has any personal experience of someone they would highly recommend then I would look into that.
No, she gave me one or two exercises but not a structured program. She said her job for that session was to correct the problem and that I should get an appointment with a NHS physio who would be able to give me a program. I may do that but was wondering whether anyone had got a structured program privately.
Wasn't sure whether to put this post here in Training or in Health & Injury. Anyway, following a recent injury - very sore right leg - I saw a physio who diagnosed a misalignment of the left side of the body which she has now corrected. She advised strengthening exercises for the hips/glutes/core to prevent the problem reoccurring.
I've been online and found exercises like clams, bridges, planks etc and I've started doing those each day. However, I would like a structured program i.e. so many reps of this that and the other and do them so many times a day.
My question is has anyone obtained something similar from someone (coach, physio etc) which they can highly recommend (and what was the cost)?
I'm just starting week 12 of an 18 week P & D marathon program. Today's session was 9 miles with 6 x 800 reps which I ran in about 2.50 with 3 mins recovery. I've been reading a number of articles on the internet which suggest this may not be the most effective interval session for marathon training. The P & D will have me doing longer reps in the next few weeks.
I was wondering whether the P & D interval sessions are the right way to go or whether there are interval sessions which are better.
If there are better ones then how many, at what speed (MP about 7.10 - 7.15) and how long for the recovery.
