Louise,

So glad you’re looking for another opinion – life is short…..

Also good to hear that you’re running again, even if it is with caution, beats not running IMO – if you can do it.

BTW – if I see hawks (not too many vultures up here) near my house then I know that it’s probably because my husband is cooking bacon outside again…. that or he’s finally made good on his threat to let one of our clawless cats outside Shocked 

Hope you had a great b-day!

It's great to hear that you've been able to do some running again Louise and I hope that you can continue.

Good luck with that second opinion. I know I would go under the knife in order to keep running as long as they gave me reasonable odds for success.

Great to hear you're able to run some. I thought all my heart stuff would be what stopped me from running. Turns out my back was what stopped me in my tracks. Finally went under the knife to slice the ruptured disc. a bad hammy shut me down this summer but back to running.

Running might make back worst in long run but I'm gonna keep running as long as I can.

Thank you all for your comments and support, only a true runner, no a true cardiac athlete and a runner, can understand why we do what we do.

Psst, I added my heart info in my sig line, new avatar pic too!

My run this morning went well, we're supposed to get thunderstorms today, the sky looked like Rachel's pic for the Park 2 Park run.  80 degrees, 88% humidity.  I thought about Rachel running her half today, good motivation, pace 9:42, I thought I was running slow.  Smile

Ah Hah!   I changed the title of my thread to "Walk and Run", a little OCD scratch was going on when it finally clicked, "Change your first post lady."

Love the new pic, Louise! Very pretty!

And you should change the title...since you are now running again. Just be careful!!!

I am so happy for you being back at it again. Smile

I haven't posted on this thread in a while, I'm being cautious.  I have an appointment next Wednesday with a Chiro who offers Active Release Therapy (I can't THANK Tom W enough) I have my hopes up that this is the key to my running pain free and avoiding surgery with my neck.  There are several docs available in Austin, the only problem is there are only 2 in my insurance network.  The one I chose is certified in Upper Extremity, Biomechanics, Lower Extremity, Spine, Active Palpation, Ironman Provider network (takes care of athletes), and Nerve Entrapment.  Sheesh, I may as well get adjusted head to toe. Razz 

I'm running pain free for the most part, I've added modified pushups, using the fence at the track or a wall, to stretch out my shoulder muscles after the run, they still count on the leaderboard on Log a Run. Wink Seems to be helping somewhat, not sure.  I am up to a 12 mile week, slow and steady progress.  

Work is crazy, clocks turn back this weekend, lose daylight for after work running.  I'll figure out something, there's always the Y and the dreadmill.

That is good news Louise.... Glad you're back to running and good luck Wednesday. I hope the ART does the trick for you... That 15K in Cinci will be a good goal for you.

This may be TMI so if it is, don't read.  I hope my posts may help someone else going through the same cervical spine issues as I and are looking for an alternative to surgery.  (Tom Walski, my hero)

I've been going to Dr. Myer here in Austin for my ART (Active Release Technique), it has helped me tremendously!  I go once a week.  There's a poster on his wall of the muscles that connect to your skull and how they run through your shoulders and upper back, a left and right view.  I told him the right view is me, that's where my pain originates at times.  When he does the release technique on my right side, my bicep muscle tightens to be uncomfortable, by the third one, the pain is gone and the bicep muscle doesn't tighten.  Last session, the left side released with a huge spasm, I asked if he felt that and he did.     

This doc has offered me no guarantees, his first words were "Your neck is what it is, we will try several things to see what works best and gives you the best relief."  He liked to hear that I was doing the modified pushups to strengthen and stretch the trapezius muscles.  I am very tight across my right scapular so we are working on both sides.  He will give me some more exercises to use for my neck.  My right arm still has issues but it will take a while for the nerve to settle down, I read one time that a nerve can take six months to heal.  1 mm a week.  After my last session, I had some muscle  fasciculation from my right shoulder into my bicep, some nerve pain with it but a couple advil and I was good to go.    

On a side note, my chest muscles had some spasm after my sessions, I could feel the nerves twitching along my collar bone.  I told the doc about this and I really believe that my OHS only added to my muscle issues.  That's ok though, I am on the right track to resolving some of these issues and as long as I can keep running, sheesh, I'm in good shape.

Now that I have Cincy to train for, I hope I can stay comfortable to meet that goal.  I ditched my orthotics.  My last pair of running shoes showed more wear on the outside heal then center as I have always had with motion control shoes.  My current running shoes feel good, my feet don't hurt and I don't feel like I'm running on the outside of my feet.  My left foot still has the bunion but it's holding up ok.  The next several weeks, I will make it a priority to run, even if just a 2 miler every other day (today I ran 3), I need to build up my endurance and gain strength.  

Thank you all for your support, if all goes well, look out Grand Rapids!! Very Happy

Thanks for the update! I give you so much credit for staying with those exercises - you're certainly doing whatever it takes to get back on track!!!

Glad to hear that you're still running throughout all this and I really look forward to seeing you in Cinci!!! -

What event are you doing there?

I'm glad to hear the ART has helped so much Louise... And hoping you have continued improvement.

The Heart Mini 15K should keep you (and all the rest of us who are running it) plenty motivated through the long winter!

Is anyone running the Half? Or is it just the 15K? I have not signed up but want to make sure that I am not running solo.
Looking for a lot of input.

Hi Kevin,

I'm doing the 15K as well - I'm not sure how many are running the half or 15 - I'm just doing what I did last year (it's a good distance for me that time of year) - but it is also my understanding that the 15k is the "signature" race at this event.
