tB never signed me up. So me and The Dude just went and cheered her on.

Womens...she asked and asked for 5 weeks if I would run with her. For 5 weeks I said "Yes, sign me up". Friday night she tells me she never signed me up because she thought I didn't want to do it.

Maybe you should sign yourself up instead of asking mummy to do it, gnueb.

I doubled up and did Kenpo saturday and sunday this weekend. Good wook outs.
Tonight, shoulders, bis, tris and rippers. KMS.

biked up & down the west side sat...not sure how many miles (didn't have my clock set up) but i was out for a lil over 2 hours. it was a blast when i wasn't riding in to the wind.

was in bk yesterday cheering on a friend who was running the marathon & was able to run a lil over 3 miles beside her before my knee told me to go fuck myself :lol:

i can't even begin to explain how much freaking fun we had yesterday!! for reals, the energy in brooklyn was just incredible! so inspiring that i'm calling my doc today to have my knee checked out & hopefully healed soon because i'd really like to register for the half marathon in march :)

Did you ever try a brace?

i bought an it band compression strap that i've yet to use. i'll try it sometime this week if i'm feeling up to it.
my marathon friend is currently studying exercise & nutrition & mentioned that the braces & straps don't do shit & that it's all about proper stretching & strengthening the hips (which are probably weak from sitting in an office for most of the day). didn't have much time to pick her brain, but i should be properly diagnosed by a doc regardless because i'm just guessing that it's my it band...could be something else.

:funny1:
i've started incorporating different stretching techniques to focus on the it band & hip, but not until i was already injured.
the stretching has helped in that the pain goes away completely in less than 24 hrs, but it keeps coming back every single freaking time i run...stupid injury :carla:

here's a link that breaks it down in less technical terms:

There might be some help here.
I also recommend the lotus stretches. Both front and reverse.

sweet! i'll try those, thanks

isn't there only one way to do the lotus stretch? does front & reverse refer to which leg is over which?

on a side note...while i was up at 3 am icing my leg:funny1: i came across some info on the web about posture as well as right & wrong ways to do certain leg exercises in order to strengthen the glutes, quads & hips & it appears i've been doing a few things wrong...great :lol:

the lotus can be done 3 different ways and each has its own name. Let me find you some examples of each. I do these stretches 3-4 times a week and also as part of yoga. I HIGHLY recommend yoga for flex and strength. It will really strengthen up your hips, core and quads and make them much more flexible.

This is the frontal version and is really, really effective. I do this one before kenpo. Also, he is doing it lack luster in my opinion in the video. He should hold those poses and do 3-4 deep breaths. One more note. I pull the back ankle up to my butt and try and put my core posture as straight as possible.


The lady demonstrates the yoga lotus. Which is what i consider "reverse". As it works the same areas in the opposite direction.

Yoga stresses you out? :lol:
Youre seriously doing it wrong at that point. :lol:
