Counting Down to Competition
Contributed By Lesley Paterson
With only 10 days left to taper and rest up for the World Championships, my pelvis was starting to feel much better with my daily treatments. I was able to walk without pain and eventually I was able to run for 2-3 minutes at a time without really hurting afterward.
While I knew I would not be in the best shape for the race, my hopes were high that I would at least be able to get on the start line, and ideally also complete the race – an outcome that I wouldn’t have believed was possible when my injury first happened.
So, keeping up with my regular laser treatments, I watched my stiffness decrease, range of motion increase, and was able to work my way up to doing more and more activities without pain.
