Eureka – Archimedes screamed this when he realised that volume of water displaced was equal to the volume of his submerged body – history lesson over.
Tonight I had my second visit to my physio and after much prodding, poking and an ultra sound we finally found the problem with my thigh.
It’s my adductor – I thought the pain I felt was in my quads when I planted my foot – that was until she found the adductor. I nearly hit the ceiling, the pain as she prodded it was excruciating. After about another 15 minutes work on it, I was walking with only a little discomfort. An hour later and it feels heaps better.
One problem with this muscle is when I apply the Deep Heat or Rapigel, it’s very close to a part of my anatomy that doesn’t benefit from either -in fact it makes them downright uncomfortable! It’s a bloke thing girls -just trust me on this one.
I’m still going to see the sports doc at Olympic Park on Thursday and my physio has kindly written him a note on the work she’s being doing on me.
I am now hoping that I am on the road to full recovery; it’s been a long five weeks and I can’t wait to get back into full training and start realising some goals. Only this time, I’m sticking to plan and not going to overdo it.
