Re: Walking ... how do you keep from boredom

Before I hurt my foot, I walked my daughter to school - 2km every morning. We would notice the seasons change together. Somehow walking and seeing the world through her wondering eyes made it much more interesting!!!

Re: Peroneal tendon

I had a running dream last night, and it was soooo good. I was running through pacific spirit park with my daughter. So I woke up and have been thinking about my Maniacs all day :) Been using the search function - I'm finding some stuff about peroneal tendinitis, but no tears. Maybe this really is a...

Peroneal tendon

Hi all! Long time no speak! I haven't run in about 7 months now, due to a somewhat unusual issue. There are a few blogs out there, but no live people that I've found! So of course I though of my maniacs - someone on here has probably experienced this and can give me advice! About 7 months ago (last ...

Re: Boston Marathon 2013

Haven't been on here in while but I just wanted to say PHEW that all our Maniacs seem to be OK.

My heart goes out to everyone. Just a sad, senseless tragedy.

Re: Back in the Saddle again?

GUESS WHAT???? I walked this week for the first time WITHOUT PAIN!!!!! I tried a new thing on monday (well, new for me) called spinal decompression. Actually, not true - I tried it years ago after a car accident (it was my only relief - did it a couple times a week for three months) and it was calle...

Re: Back in the Saddle again?

Thanks guys! I've managed to walk at least 1k every day. :) My lower back still burns, and last night it kind of got "stuck" during a pose in yoga. Thankfully there is a physio in my class, and she said that she thinks I am still having a joint issue - that the pain was likely not muscular...

Re: Back in the Saddle again?

Thank you SO much, Avis! That is really sound advice - I thnk I will try it for sure! I am lucky to live one block from a lake that is exactly a 1km loop and has a dirt trail around it, so that will work out really well! One question - did you do your walking on the dirt trail as well??? Or was walk...

Re: Back in the Saddle again?

I know!!! Crazy huh? We went for a walk at Belcarra with Maia today - it was awesome! Maia, maia though - it took us 45 minutes to walk 1 k there, and about 20 minutes to walk back. The difference? We put Maia in the carrier on the way back :) Still, she LOVED it. We're trying to train her hiking mu...

Re: Back in the Saddle again?

Thank you! It's funny, because I feel the pain more when walking and have to be really conscious to almost do a pelvic tuck when I walk. I don't feel it so much in running - probably because things go more quickly, lol! OK, walking sticks are packed for today! Kelodie, I'd love to see that plan!! Th...

Re: Back in the Saddle again?

Thanks guys! Good advice Jen. It's hard to take, but it is good advice! I still am quite sore, but I think at this point much of it is from having lost so much of my muscle tone in my stomach and lower back. Even yoga - I've been told no more forward bends - possibly ever - so it is hard to do that ...

I just have trouble sometimes getting online in the evenings - after Maia is in bed, I am too exhausted to do much :) I was thinking of maybe nordic walking. i...

Back in the Saddle again?

Hi all, long time no see! I've been a bit awol, not only from RM, but from exercise in general :( In September I herniated two discs in my back (L4 and L5) and also did something to bungle up my SI joint. It took 2 weeks of icing my SI joint 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off just to get the inflammat...

Lightening, You probably are getting enough carbs! One of my friends eats very similarly to you - she tries to eat like they ate 20,000 (pre-farming) years ago or something - so no refined grains at all (in fact, almost no grains). Helps her keep trim, and she hasn't had any bf-ing problems. I don't...

That's a good point with the BF-ing. I remember reading somewhere that carbs are important for breast milk production. I don't know for sure though, nor do I know how many carbs one needs (like would a daily serving of fruit, etc count?) What about legumes and beans on this low carb diet - they are ...
