<p>Morning all.   </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Not much going on yet.  Gym and elliptical this afternoon to take out my frustrations.  PT can't see me till next Thursday.  Told them I'd come earlier if anyone cancels. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ver thinks trochanteric bursitis.  WebMD describes it perfectly. </p>

<p>At least a diagnosis gives you a path forward, KS.  I had a glance at the causes.... do you run on the same side of a lot of cambered roads?  My hips are a bit sensitive to imbalances (glutes, piriformus, TFLs) and I find I have to switch up the sides if I'm running for long.  Of course, not having done a long run on pavement since last March has probably helped.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>HF, I'd been running in Addiction 8's, then 9's, quite successfully for several years.  Last spring when the Morton's started to flare, I went up a half size.  The 10's are definitely a little bit different, but the left feels wonderful.  Will try playing around with the insoles on the right to see if I can figure out a solution. Perhaps I'll also go looking for some 9's on-line. In the mean time, I've added my Montrails into the road shoe rotation as they're a trail/road hybrid anyway.  An appointment with my GP has been made to discuss the possibility of a cortisone shot for next week.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>3.6 easy miles at lunch in the blowing snow with a friend from the office.  Felt wonderful!</p>
<p>And yay....there'll be skiiing this weekend!!!</p>

Greetings from sunny Savannah Just got done with an hour on the elliptical. Different than the one I an used to so I started easy and increased resistance as I went. I could just barely feel my foot I dropped the tile on but my right side and knee feels great. On to some more driving. Still a few hundred miles to go.

<p>Hi Heme.  A lot of my runs are out and back especially when I'm running downtown.  So I do have camber change that way.  I think you've hit a key point however and I need to be more attentive to that.  I've spent an hour this afternoon talking to the owner of our local Fleet Feet store about minimalist shoes, heel drop, etc.  Many of the shoe mfg advertising is totally wrong in many cases.  I'm going to stay with my NB 890's, my k swiss blades, and probably get a pair of the Brooks Flow.   If you get a chance at your lrs look at the heel strike on a pair of Brooks flow and a pair of Asics, Nike, etc.<br><br>
I'm waiting for doc to call back.  WebMD says as long as 6 months complete rest!  Yikes, that isn't going to happen.  But I have questions about what I can do safely; like the elliptical and bicycling without causing further inflammation.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Rip is going South to warmth and Heme is running in snow.  Beautiful day here in mid 70's, sunny, and a breeze.</p>

<p>evening all - Another sweltering day here, with temps getting into the mid 30's - yucky....   The hammies were still tight this morning so decided to pass on my morning run, but by mid-afternoon I was feeling guilty and decided to try and have a light jog in the heat (trying to acclimatise), and decided on a short couple of kilometers at a slow pace, just to test the leg and also the heat. Have to say neither were a great success, although the heat is less an issue than the hamstrings - Maybe I should take a couple of days off altogether from any running or pressure on the hams -  we'll see..</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Heme was asking if I had seen a masseuse (sic) - but I haven't found one around here that speaks english and can focus on the sports side of things, and whilst my spanish is passable, it isn't into the technicalities of leg muscles... I am stretching it out and applying ice after the run, but so far self-treatment isn't working, hence the thoughts of having a few days off and seeing if that works. Daft thing is, it doesn't actually hurt while I am running, only when I stop :)...  Maybe I should just run for 24 hours at a time :)....   then again, maybe not....</p>

<p>Greetings, Masterfuls.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh.... you meant Celsius, Liam. Got it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Three miles here. A bit more brisk again, maybe 20ish (that's Fahrenheit), with some wind. Felt bloated because I ate too much last night.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good runs, all</p>

<p>Hi all...6.5 inches of rain here in the last 48 hrs, so I went to the gym. 4.5 progressive TM miles, seemed like it was about 85° in there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Will take the inserts back to the podiatrist....you seem to have nailed it HF, these things DO have a heel on them, in fact it's so much of a hell I thought they were pumps when I first saw them. No wonder I kept rolling my ankle while trail running.</p>

<p>Hang in there Johnny - there's hope yet. Just give the podiatrist some feedback and a chance to make the product right for you.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another 6-miler for me tonight on the TM. Actually got up to 10:30 mpm without arch pain, despite the fact that the flattened lump persists.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>No rain, but plenty of snow here and I don't think it's going away anytime soon. Still in the 20's today.</p>
<p>6.5 inches of rain, Johnny!? That's incredible. Is that normal?</p>

<p>6.5 inches of rain?  Just imagine if that had been snow!  You'd have probably been talking somewhere around 5 feet!!!! <span><img alt="sad5.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_2_1327063060499_165" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad5.gif"></span></p>

<p>My rain gauge showed 13.5 inches, Johnny. I know that's not accurate, but can someone please explain to me why a rain gauge always seems to accumulate more rain than what we actually received?  The amount of rain we've received the last couple days has certainly made up for lack we had in December. I heard this a.m. that Mt. Bachelor received 35 inches of snow!  I guess the ski conditions are the best they've had in years. That nice powdery stuff that skiier's love. I'm not a skier, so don't know about snow quality, but I guess this is the best of the best right now.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The rain is light today, or at least so far. I'll try to get in a run at lunchtime, but if not, then I'll head up to the track after work, regardless if it's raining or not.</p>
