|No, it's not some Vulcan incapacitating technique, it's an injury.|
Weight lifters also get it, so maybe the leg lunges with weights I was trying out to strengthen my knees started it off.
Lower back mobility is another issue - and I've always had difficulty touching my toes with straight legs, ever since I was a kid.
There are a bunch of exercises to strengthen the core muscles, which should prevent it from re-occurring, and there are a load of stretches to ease it off in the mean time.
But the horrifying crux of the matter is - I should stop running till the pain goes, then build back up gently.
Yuk! Horrible idea!
I've got three and a half months till the Marlborough 33 miler - so I've got to rest if I'm going to get better.
In the meantime, I'll be back at the boxing and static bike - and I'm looking to get a rowing machine maybe - to keep the cardio up and help with the core flexing and strength.
