8:45am appointment at University of Kentucky Running Clinic. I was paired with Grad Student Kimberly Lucas. She worked with me for about 2 hours. We started by checking range of motion at every joint in my legs. She also was checking for strength imbalances. We found that I have limited range of motion in many areas. Also, my left quad is weaker than the right. Glutes are also weak. I have Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome. Groin is too tight as well.
I then ran on a treadmill that was rigged with pressure sensors to measures landing force and push off. They also video taped me running. End result, I land a little too hard. I'm a heal striker. With the imbalances mentioned above; my gait is shortened. I'm lifting early.
She gave me many stretching exercises to do. I'm do back in a month or so to check progress.
5:30 pm run on TM at home. 6 miles in 54 minutes
