Ran a mile today, but it's obvious that the injuries have not gone away. Loosening tight muscles faster than I can strengthen others has left me with instabilities. And now my allergies are back!
The current assessment:
Left peroneal tendon: healed.
Left piriformis: 95-100%
Right piriformis: 95%
Left achilles: 80%
Right achilles 50% (surgery looks unavoidable)
Left tensor fascia latae: 30% (started rehabbing late)
Right TFL: healed
Right gluteus medius: healed
Right proximal hamstring: 80%
Left iliopsoas: 95%
Too many coaches
I may not be able to run again and I lost the last athlete I was coaching, while dozens of friends have paid the fee and taken the seminar course to get coaching accreditation certificates when they know nothing. [Test: ask your coach who should do fartlek training, why they should do it and how you set up a fartlek workout.] The problem is that I'm seen as a dinosaur, too "old school" to be relevant. Old school? Right now, my training incorporates elements of CFE/HIIT, myofascial release and PNF, plyometrics, cross-training and heart rate training. I just think athletes should work at their sport - is that so wrong?
Think your running shoes are expensive, but stylish? Try these.
