So P-Lo sends the mail yesterday AM which I equated to a surfer friend calling up another surfing friend: Dude, surf's up. Waves are perfect. Let's hit it. In cycling translation (especially in Boulder): Dude, weather's perfect. No sand on the roads...and no wind. Let's hit it.

And so, he and I rolled our recovery ride yesterday AM talking and catching up
spinning in the beautiful sun. SO the topic turns to injury and pain and I mention that I am STILL having this mad left leg set of issues. Pain, loss of power, etc. It starts at my hip, runs like a sword through my left ass cheek, down hamstring and straight down through my shin/extensors to my foot. WTF?! So P-Lo, recommends his guy here who sees Chris W, Health Net and a bunch of other endurance folks with crippled bodies to get some testing done. Apparently he's like the Muscle Whisperer and is about 500m from my house. I'm feeling infinitely better these days (stronger ironically even before I get za plan re-launched) but I've gotta get this remedied.

Stay tuned.

So all he does is whisper something in your ear. Like a magic word?? You have to let us know what it is. Could be something like Velojelo.

Or it could be: "Stop being a wuss, Greg." Dunno. We'll see. And it shall be....blogged.

Gregoire, if that's the guy behind Amante I need to see him, WB swears by him and I have the same issues with my left leg, let me know the secret word mate

You know, Longman, I think these are different guys. WB's is a massage therapist, and this guy PLo hooked me on is a chiropractor and muscle therapist working with 'cold laser' I believe. Anyhoo, I'll get it hooked up and tell you about it when I get a few sessions under me belt.

Dude, you probably have sciatica from a herniated disc in your lower back. Ask a neurosurgeon about IDET - a small catheter gets looped around the disc that's leaking, and then the tip heats up and melts it back together. Worked for me, outpatient, 4 months PT/recovery and now I'm better than I have been in years.

You have some classic signs of an overuse injury. I had simular issues over the last 2 years that the root source was my back and imbalence of leg and core muscles. Get on a program soon cause it dosen't resolve itself easily..then you will be in pain all the time and slow like me.

Chrissakes, you all have my sphincter puckering with this talk of bulging discs, catheters, and the like. I got me an appt with 'the man' so I'll let you know how they go.
