RE: Just had surgery w/ Meyers July 8: looking for other distance runners who had this issue
This is very true. I know for me the constant battle is lengthening the adductors and stopping inflammation. It is a battle I am winning but that was the toughest for me so far through week 9.
My biggest pains at the moment are non-AP...LOL
Meniscus (healing well finally)
Plantar Fasciatis (this is a bitch)
Opposite side back/TFL (this side has been compensating so long it is weak..however, with the proper excercises seems to be getting stronger each week...must foam roll daily)
AP related it still is tender to do planks (i am out of shape) and pushups....
My groin each morning is tight as a drum but loosens more easily each day.
The mistake I made and may not apply to those "in shape" is i did more distances walking 5-9 miles daily without having that strength base in place....
SO i have readjusted my plans to include 75% strength and stretch and 25% walking...
Before it was opposite in a quest to drop weight. the core strength is more important than weight coming off fast.
This is the reason to get a quick diagnosis and not have this crap unravel on you. I am fighting on many fronts rather than just healing AP. If that were the case I would be about 90% now. I would say my AP is about 75% and the rest of my dysfunctions about the same. At this time 9 weeks ago I was barely functioning at all....I would say 20%.
So...I am pleased....it is a longer road for me than many but it is within my grasp. I would imagine by October I will be close to 95% and i can live with that. i am not a runner so that is not a goal of mine. I would like to sprint for workouts but not distance. I would like to be back in the boxing gym in October.
