Welcome to the Valuable Information Thread. I hope this becomes a repository of useful information that has been shared in the other threads in this forum and some of the others.<br><br>
If you know of something useful to add, please let me know and I’ll put it in here. I don’t know if Diablita also has the power to edit the thread, as the forum moderator.<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Foot Care:</span><br><br>
The book “Fixing Your Feet” by John Vonhof – recommended by many ultra runners <br>
Mr. Vonhof also maintains a <a href="http://vonhof.typepad.com/happy_feet/" target="_blank">blog</a>. It is worth perusing.<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">ITBS and Muscle issues:</span><br><br>
Foam Rollers, The Stick, Cho-Pat knee strap. You can find a relatively inexpensive items at <a href="http://www.zombierunner.com/store/injury_prevention.html" target="_blank">http://www.zombierunner.com/store/in...revention.html</a> and probably in local sporting goods stores, especially stores for runners.<br><br>

And for myofascial release providers: <a href="http://www.myofascialrelease.com" target="_blank">www.myofascialrelease.com</a><br><br>

This might belong in the WaterStop, but someone might look here, so…<br><br>
Here’s a <a href="http://kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4798" target="_blank">link</a> to a discussion of Electrolyte replacement.<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Knees:</span><br><br><a href="https://secure.cho-pat.com/products/product.php?product_type=10" target="_blank">https://secure.cho-pat.com/products/...roduct_type=10</a><br><br>
There are links at the above website. I don’t know how useful it is. I can edit this if something else is better or remove it if it isn’t a good source of information.

great article:<br><a href="http://www.topendsports.com/medicine/cramping.htm" target="_blank">http://www.topendsports.com/medicine/cramping.htm</a><br><br>
this is the stretch I had to do with physical therapy (knees bent)<br><br>
the part of what to do with a cramp onset, sits home with me, as some of you know that I swore that I tore my calf when I hyperextended my leg during a cramp while I was sleeping. I think it was Hippo that explained that you need to massage your cramps out. I still get calf cramps and it's really hard not to hyperstretch my leg as a first reaction, but the article is really good at explaining why you really shouldn't. My cramps have become fewer with Magnesium supplements.
