Fun 5k in Portland, Oregon & L.A. (Pasadena) Cali on Thanksgiving:
(and I know part of the proceeds for the Portland one are benefiting a local farm animal sanctuary)
Hey all - thought I'd chime in.I had a bit of trouble with ITBS when I started running seriously about 2 years ago . . . and this is what I did to alleviate it completely in ONE session:http://youtu.be/mlYM3KWwrGYNow, I do stretch like this regularly . . . have never heard much positive from the foam roller idea, and I massage my own muscles with my own hands, feels much better and is much more healing and a way to get in 'touch' with your own body!The pose above can also be done as the 'pigeon' pose in yoga, for an even deeper stretch that also engages the core.Again - I used to begin to get a bit of an ITBS ache outside my right knee after more than 7 or 8 km for a few runs . . . but after doing this stretch once and running the next day, have NEVER had it again.I have recommended this stretch to others with a perfect success rate.Do check your running form, though, as it may be contributing . . . mine is pretty good and I focus on form as I run as the top priority, make sure you do too!
Hey Toni Whats ITBS? Thxs :)
Any high carb raw vegans in the ultra marathon running scene in Oregon (I go to college in Salem) or in the bay area? It would be awesome to meet new people who share my passion for bipedal motion and adventure and awesome food! Please add me as a friend here or on FB under Benjamin Beeler
For all you Southern Californians: Happy Healthy Vegan presents a Fruitluck w/ Tim VanOrden of RunningRaw.com. This Sunday, September 29 at Bluff Park in Long Beach.
What could be better? Eating fruit with fellow fruit lovers while hearing Tim VanOrden of RunningRaw give a talk. Tim was such an amazing speaker at this year's Woodstock, so we're very fortunate to have him out here. And we are planning to do a little sunset run after his talk.
Find out more on our LA fruitluck meetup page or Facebook event page.
yeh, glutes and lower back ~ f/rollers are great ~ get one!
I think I will wait to buy at my next PT conference. PTs get good discounts! So I recently met with a PT who is an ortho specialist and he recommended strengthening hips specifically glutes (medial) to increase stability which is what is probably causing the knee pain... Makes sense since my hips are very flexible. I think I will still get the roller and start some serious glute work...not my fave but necessary.... I have bursitis right now in my left knee :(
