Had to call it quits on Physio

Hello Everyone!

Hope everyone was killing it on their runs this week! I had a pretty easy week of running only clocked in 32km. It was raining quite a bit this week so I did not end up running on some of the days when I finished work. Although I know for some rain does not bother people but I would just rather not have wet socks.

Anyways, based on the title I am sure you all know that I had to decide on ending it with my physiotherapist this week after seeing her for about a month, because it was not cutting it for me. I have a little pain in my knee. I did tell my family doctor who is going to schedule a sports physician to take a look. In the meantime, I wanted to try and get some work done because it was going to take a bit before I’d get to visit the doctor. Something that I realized is if you are a bit more on the athletic side you should see actual physio clinics that are more specialized with those types of customers. The current place that I went to was referred to by a friend but as they told me themselves they work on people that are more so office workers and it did show as I noticed based on other clinics I visited their approach is very different. While I do understand that every clinic is different its something that I just wanted to share with you guys because I felt it was important.

I will not get into the details of why I felt it was not working out because that is not what this blog is about. So in the future if any of you guys are looking to get treated its something to ask before you visit whichever clinic you are going to. Based on my family doctor and the physiotherapist I am ok to continue running however, I will probably slow the pace down just in case so I do not overload my knee to much.

Something else that I wanted to mention is that fall time is such a nice season to go trail running its a beautiful view because you have the trees changing colours and its covered with a nice set leaves. It can get a little dangerous because you cannot see the ground as well, but you can just go slower and enjoy the view longer.

Thank you for listening and I hope you are all enjoying your runs.

Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing
