My active recovery regime goes like this: 1) hot tub jets on the injury, 2) static stretching, 3) massage with Deep Blue ointment with hard stick, 4) workout including eccentric resistance.
Hoka trainers on
seated leg curl
glute ham raise
20 x Fowler center stairs (23 steps)
several mile bike ride
The stair running was a real good sweat. Interesting that running stairs, even aggressively doesn't hurt at all, yet running on the flat still does a little.
What I did today will probably be my regime for tomorrow too. May try to run slowly Tue or Wed with a wrap.
141.3 lbs after workout.
I was hoping to post some better times and go after the 25 yr old TN state record in the 200m next weekend, but this injury screwed me out of the opportunity. Now, the Europeans are having their National Championships and they are beginning to gear up for worlds, I expect my rankings to begin to sink. Alan ran 24.1 in the 200m, the French Nat'l champ ran 24.88. Looks like Benoit ran 57.02 winning the French Natl's in the 400m. Waiting to see what the Brits and Germans do.
