I limped through another BMF class today. There was a little too much running for my liking but that serves me right for promoting myself back into the reds too soon. At least I can now manage a moderate speed which is a vast improvement on last weeks full ahead slow. Actually the initial discomfort in my hip soon disappears once I get warmed up and moving (slowly) so I had few excuses for stopping to rest other than my burning lungs because of my complete loss of fitness!
I was back at the physio this afternoon where I purchased this new orange instrument of torture to reach parts of my over-worked muscles that the foam roller cannot reach. I also had acupuncture for the first time having some needles put into my ITB and glutes. Much much less painful than massage!
This evening I have declined the kind offer of DIY physio services from my younger son with a compass! I am sticking with my stretches, foam rolling and working out what to do with the rubber orange spiky thing!
