|Subject: ||RE: loss of coordination in leg|
I've seen everyone under the sun for the issue. I am telling you right now...Face it..it isn't going to EVER completely go away. Now, I do have my good and bad days and good and bad months with it. It is muscular skeletal as an issue and also typically neurological or a hip imbalance of some kind. I am still pushing though and trying to run through it and compete with the rest of the guys on my D1 team. Its just hard because and effort with this problem is twice as hard as their effort and thus is harder to recover from and keep mentally intact. I can beast shorter reps like 400's and 800's pretty damn well without a lot of problems but the longer tempos get to me. The treadmill has been my savior...atleast sanity wise. For some reason it is easier on my leg and i have gotten to the point where I can run 8 mile tempo's on it at 5 mintue pace without the leg problem being a huge issue. The only problem is adapting to the heat when I do a session with my team outside as I have been doing tempo's inside in cooler weather. Keep up on rehab (russian stim works well), and def. do ab work, leg balance work, and muscle memory exercises. If anyone wants the program I currently doing for the issue that I have kinda pieced together with doctor's just let me know on the message board. It really has helped some and I am just looking forward to track where I can run shorter events liek the 3k steeple chase where the leg problem doesnt really kick in that much. Best of luck to everyone and keep dealing with it!!!!
