Had Physio today, boy am I sore!
So I've tight ITB, calves, hips and hammies. Oh and I really overpronate!
She did accupuncture, deep massage (ow!), mobs on my spine and taped my feet.
She's given me stretches to do 3 times a day, they take about 25 mins so I'll never fit them in 3 times a day but I'll do as much as I can.
She's said I should be fine for my 10k this Sunday although I may end up sore towards the end. After that I can then decide whether or not to do the 2nd 10k next Sunday.
Seeing her again in 2 weeks.
Just come back from my first session with a Physio, blimey I've loads of problems! She's given me 21 mins of stretches to do 3 times a day as I've got my first 10k this Sunday and 2nd next Sunday, yes bad planning I know! Anyway I need to get new trainers after my 2 races and asked her advice and she recommended the Nike free runners. I wear custom made orthotics as I massively overpronate. Any thoughts? Had a look at some but they seem so flimsy compared to my current trainers.
I did a 3.7k run yesterday which went OK. My knee was sore at the start but eased off and has been fine since. My groin problems started at about 2 k but I didn't need to stop. Shin splints were a bit sore.
Physio tomorrow so lets she what she says.
First 10k on Sunday, hope I finish it.
