How did it go, DM asks. Hmmm. Torturous and eye-opening! I've been having a tweaky hip flexor/groin for awhile now. Not painful, but tweaky. Decided to pay my PT a visit, he always knows how to a) talk me off the ledge, and b) figure out the issue and give me ways to solve it.
Turns out, my problem area is STILL my back. It's not where it should be flexibility wise, yet, thus making it difficult to gain any strength in that area. Which I/we all need in order to run effectively. I get to about 4 days a week/20'ish miles of running, my back gets as tight as a drum and other areas pick up the slack and suffer. First it was my IT band, now it's my hip flexor. So, today we worked on all sorts of "fun" stuff. I was humbled at how difficult it was to do bear walks and crab walks. Also humbling was the difficulty of getting the proper form on a seated row. But, it was nice to get a compliment from him that my hips are super strong, and my form for lunges and side lunges was impeccable- yay! So, less focus on hip/leg/glute strengthening, and hitting the weights and stretching a lot for my back. At the end, he also had me do 1 min intervals of jump rope, butt kicks, high knees, 3 min hold on tip toes, and another jumping drill in bare feet, to work on foot strength.
