Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

"Speed" Work
« on: July 24, 2012, 04:03:15 PM »
Today was another first.  It's time for me to try and get faster.  I'm still staying on the trails near my house, but there is a loop in the center of the woods that's perfect.  Today's workout was planned for 1 minute faster, 2 minutes jog, 8 times.  Started with a 5 minute walk, then 9 minute jog to the loop, 1 minute "fast", 2 minutes easy.  I started to feel it in the hips on the 5th one, felt it more on the 6th and pulled the plug.  Jogged it back and walked 5 minutes.   Then I iced up and headed for the gym.  I'm tired from the faster running, but as usual after a good run, I'm feeling great!

I am so jealous! I'm two weeks ahead of you, and still can't run more than 2 miles before I have to take walk/run/walk breaks. Still that nasty hipflexor/psoas issue. It just knots up and I cannot run without the walk break. You're doing awesome!!

Thank you both.  MaryEllen, there has to be an answer for you.  Everyone saying be patient just isn't the answer.  Sports massage, active release, foam roller, acupuncture, PT, vudu!  I think you have to start looking into what can be done to untie the knots in your muscles so you can start to make progress.

I agree with Woodstock, I started on the roller at about four months, helped me a lot.

Another vote for the evil foam roller.  As well as Active Release Technique.

MaryEllen,
Go find yourself someone in your area who practices the Graston technique.  It will help you with those problems and allow you to return to running "in time".
Best...

Thanks guys!!! I use the foam roller religiously... but (without getting graphic) the area of the groin that pulls and seizes isn't easy to hit with the foam roller. I think I need to find a sports massage or other technique that will target the area.

I think David's advice is great, could also try a tennis ball in ... less accessible areas...  :-[ 

That works pretty well for me, since the roller is more of a carpet bomber when you may need a guided missile.
