itb update numero uno

well unfortunately it comes to this.
blogging not about adventures but injury progress......

saw the physio wednesday and massage dude today and i guess the news is predictable.
which is there wont really be any 'return to running predictions' until i go for a few short 'test runs' in a week or so.
the itb insertion point itself feels good and was only sore for 2 days so its not as bad as previous bouts when i've been out for several months.
the quads (and to a lesser extent hamies) are shot tho - really tight and knotted.
which is obviously what caused all the patellar pain at bribie and also led to the itb hurting.
i think i'll blame that on the lack of mileage (and therefore muscle tone) between gh100 and bbb, the 'hard' surface and the camber.
am quite confident of getting the quads sorted out within the week and then i'll just have to see how the itb goes when i run again.
ironically i had my 'cradle mountain' interview this week: the organisers ring to check you are worthy of entry.

guess it wont hurt now to announce i have already enetered kepler as well! http://www.keplerchallenge.co.nz/
trying not to think about GNW (november 11th) - will have to wave this one away i'm afraid!

glad to have a great team supporting me: the guys from qsmc (qld sports med), team mellum and of course the CR bloggers.
best of luck to all injured bloggers: jen_runs, ironpete and the recovering horrie.

Thanks dude. You too. I guess the one positive thing is that you have been down this road before - so you know what to do. None of those false starts & failed treatments that we have both tried so many times before.

Take care of yourself. Looking forward to reading about Kepler & Cradle!

Nice to still be remembered. Not feeling like a runner, cool or otherwise lately. Lurking mostly. Dreaming of running. :-) Hope you heal up quicker than me.
