Sadly I am not talking about this one…
But instead this one…
One of my “problem” areas over the 6+ months has been this spot in my quad. It’s a knot I get between my quad muscle and IT band and it just gets tight. It doesn’t really hurt that bad, but I just know it’s there and I don’t want to know it’s there!
It’s why I was going to ART for a while last fall and had my racing stripe.
It hadn’t bothered me much at all during Boston training and I didn’t have to go to ART, but after Boston it was a little tight and after Big Sur it was definitely tight.
Hence my dates for the evening…
They aren’t very nice dates either.
I also have an ART appointment for next week to get this knot worked out, because the chiropractor can inflict much more pain on me than I can on myself.
Do you use a foam roller and/or trigger point kit?
The trigger point therapy kit is a new addition to our house in the last month and I love it so far! I have had the grid foam roller for a while and it is so much better than the regular foam roller – I highly recommend it!
Do you have a problem area?
My quad, my shoulders (knots from sitting at a desk all day) and my foot are areas I pay more attention to than others.
