Physio part 2 today.
Firstly she put me on the treadmill to check my gait. I hate the things and spent a few minutes gripping to the front of the thing till she persuaded me to let go, really dont like the sense of feeling that I am not in control. She then filmed my effort (sure to be an Oscar nomination for that as best supporting running stance) and replayed it to me. Yep I overpronate, my foot arch has collapsed a bit and this leads to the foot turning inwards and then the knees this all equals knee injury (she tells me running everyday will have contributed somewhat to this also! oops) More massage this time on the tight calves followed by ultrasound therapy on the knee, she can see improvement from last week so am pleased with that. Was then sent away with new exercises to add to current list. Have new insoles to give support and an appointment for physio in 2 weeks.
Running? No not yet, (grrr) can cycle and swim though (no not at the same time) so may cycle to work on Monday and try to swim later in week. Useless at swimming though for many reasons, can only do breast stroke slowly, wont be able to see anything as can’t wear contact lens anymore and when I swim it makes me very hungry so will have to chocolate before I drive home.
I’m so ready to go for a run, have ordered new boulder holder, have new insoles, have downloaded 2 new audio books, all I need is the all clear and that miracle training plan that involves of course little effort and now needs to incorporate little time and one that meets with the physios approval. Miracle surely needed!
