It seems that my fire story has lit a few fires under some want to be runners. In happy response, I’m posting a general Get Running Training Schedule to get you started. Prerequisites for learning to run is that you can walk pain free for 30 minutes without shortness of breath, have some good fitting running shoes (debatable if you’ve read Christopher McDougall’s fascinating book “Born to Run”), and you are ready for some committed fun. The goal of this eight week training schedule is to get you to a point where you can run 30 minutes comfortably, not to set any world records.
I watched in horror as I saw the flames lapping above my new clinic that I had painstakingly built. (Okay, that the contractor and tradesmen painstakingly built.) The fire was put out quickly, but the water damage that was to seep through was another matter. The clinic was open just six days before this fire and once again, we had to rebuild. Bad luck, bad karma, why me? I was upset and tried to make meaning of it but couldn’t find an answer.
The knee joint is made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid. Muscles and tendons help the knee joint move. When any of these structures are injured, there will be knee problems, specifically pain and difficulty moving. Common knee conditions include patella femoral pain syndrome, IT band friction syndrome, and ligament sprains. Tears to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are caused by a sudden twisting motion in the knee.
