If.... and I mean IF.... I do another race of 50 miles or more, I'm going to have to work on my posture. Long hilly races have plagued me with lower back pain and left me stooped (ask anyone who saw me at Zumbro - I was shaped like a question mark). Pictures of me this year all look like I'm pot-bellied, but it's partly a postural thing. The photo in the header shows the problem in all its glory (note too the hand swell).
So... This blog's read by nurses, doctors, physical therapists, trainers, coaches, a chiropractor, a pilates instructor a yoga instructor and a bunch of people with a lot of experience with runners like me who won't listen to reason. Where do I start to correct the problem?
[BTW. Did anyone else notice the strange parallels between the last episode of "House" and my life? Spooky. The eating ice cream while watching "The Biggest Loser" scene and the experimental cookery has me wondering if I know one of the writers. Also, BTW: "The Biggest Loser" is now officially a freak show.]
