For those returning to running...
« on: May 30, 2012, 07:53:29 PM »
Here is something to think about/incorporate in your routine.
JOG/WALK BACKWARDS...
After my runs I've been walking and now up to a 5 minute jog AFTER my run.
Might seem strange, but it engages the glutes first, allows your hips to have a greater range of motion and strengthens the opposing muscle groups you use running forward.
It definitely has helped in reducing after run soreness.

ps:Another benefit...those pesky neighbors will know you've flipped your lid and won't bother you anymore ;)

Maybe you should get a bike mirror on your head and then you won't have to turn around when running.  I like it.  Sounds a lot like some of the warm-ups you do before a soccer match.  I'm going to work it in.   Thanks

If you are trying it on the treadmill for the first time, be careful and set the mph very low 1.5 or so...
Also side stepping laterals are good too...
As part of your pt, put a theraband on too, forward and backward...the "monster walk"...
You can and should do this before you are or should be running...

Funny you should mention the treadmill.  I totally forgot that my PT had me walk backward on the treadmill early on.  I just remembered that.  My hips might be new shiny and awesome, but crap my memory sucks.
