Avalon was played at our wedding party as the final song of the night. Roxy Music will always remind me of when I first met the AD.
Joe, Off subject again but our #1 runner has quadriceps tendinitis-a clear traing error. He undertrained during July and tried to catch up before camp. Any advice to keep him active and get him ready for the season. I gave him exercises my pt gave me during post knee surgery recovery. They worked for me. The team is good this year and he is the leader. I do not want to rush him.Any help is appreciated. JackPS Fire's son is going to volunteer with us this season.
Quad tendinitis; not patellar tendinitis?
Quad is our take-nothing confirmed.I have had both and his pain is on lateral side. What do you think/jack
Listened to a lot of Ferry and Roxy Music back in college (80's). Reminds me of a long lost girl friend.
...just where DO ex girlfriends go Kev?!Jack- Can your athlete see Doc Bonsall for a little ART and some Graston? A little soft tissue work will help."Tweak out" the quads for a bit by increasing butt/hamstring activity by using a double hand reach below the knee during your lunges. If the lunges still hurt, try doing the hand reaches in a stride stance instead with the affected leg forward. Another trick is to have him lunge/stride stance onto a low box to minimize the degree of knee bend and increase the degree of hip flexion
Thanks, Joe. I'm on it. I'll have to fabricate a box or have little "Fire" bring one over to practice. Jack
