The Injured Fit Freak

As it says!! Injured! This is how it began, took a deadlift ever so slightly wrong, as I stood up I felt a very slight pinch in my back. Next day Hiit, ran a park run, cross country race one day, Tiptree 10 miler next day where I felt the pain moved no down to my knee. Ran Beachy Head marathon 2 weeks later on no runs, held out until mile 15, got through it.

 Continued my Hiit sessions, running, PT session, weights etc end result;

Lots of pain behind my left knee, I can run on it but after end up in pain, however it’s hindering my  weight training hugely! I’ve also had an ongoing niggle in my right shoulder that has also escalated, I’m loosing confidence in a lot of my training as don’t trust my shoulder not to give out.

I’ve seen one of our bootcamp instructors who has trained as a sports therapist, he has done a great job, this week he’s worked on everything. He also uses the technique “cupping” I’ve had this before, however Tom’s method is different and much more effective. If you’re local to Chelmsford or Billericay he’s well worth a visithttps://www.facebook.com/ThomasJBell-Sports-Therapy-1779387505614609/

Then there’s old “Magic Hands” Deb. She specialises in clinical massages. 1.5 hours of firm, deep but relaxing massage. Based in Ramsden Heath she to is worth a visit. https://www.facebook.com/deborahjanemassage/

For me the combination of Deb and Tom are perfect.  I have now taken 1 week off any form of exercise. It’s going to be tough but I’m have to do it.

I have also invested in this book thank you to Deb for showing it to me. Invaluable piece of kit.
