Need to get more of these and get back in shape. Not a bad run over the past 3 and a half years of doing triathlon and running lots. Did everything from 5k’s to 50 mile ultra marathons. And did countless sprint to full distance Ironman’s.
Bad traffic made it so that the Mister was unable to meet me for a swim date. But, he was able to get here in time for Maddie’s swim lessons, so at least my M&M’s got to swim together! 🤗
On a sad side note, I had to bid farewell to one of my long time friends tonight. This @athleta swimsuit has been with me through a lot. It saw me go from an athlete with zero swim confidence to one that feels pretty darn comfortable in the water. Thanks for the years of faithful service!
Great workout today. #zwift makes those long trainer rides so much better. Follow that up with a brick. You can find me on my couch in my @air_relax boots drinking a glass of bourbon. Both are for the recovery 😏
Playing off of my post this week on functional versus structural costs of pain, I want to say this to all those who have been spooked by an MRI or a big worded diagnosis of their issue: STOP OVER THINKING.
Just as making a structural diagnosis without context is confusing and disheartening, biomechanical information that is above the head of anyone but the therapist or trainer does very little to help client get better or understand the condition.
I think it is absolutely critical to give a test and retest for issues we are dealing with but we want to eliminate as much subjectivity as possible when doing so.
The most adaptable monitoring tool I have found in these situations is the patient-specific functional scale.
The simply represents the activities that the we must complete on a daily basis that are painful. Simply rate these activities on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of pain and use them as indicators of progress as training or rehab progresses.
For example if I have pain with lunging and cutting, then the level of pain I'm dealing with as I begin to be incorporate these exercises I rate on a daily basis.
If they hurt less consistently and your numbers are going down, whatever you are doing is probably working. If that is not the case, then rethink your strategy.
What I love about this idea is that the only subjectivity lies with YOU (Aka the person that is most likely to make an accurate assessment of their condition)
Try this tid bit with any painful issue you are dealing with and let me know if it helps.
