The Bane of Every Runner’s Life – Piriformis Syndrome Exercises
Running can be a pain in the butt sometimes. If it’s not blisters, it’s niggling knees or misfiring quadriceps. And this weekֳ flavour is just as consuming: Piriformis syndrome. Equally as annoying standing up as it is sitting down, the condition can be pretty debilitating if not treated with the correct amount of humility and care. Piriformis syndrome exercises have become commonplace in many stretching routines such as my own. Yet still, the blighters hurt.
Olympimania has taken hold of the country. The nation is going nuts with each new British success on the rowing lake, in the velodrome and on the track. After the wall to wall coverage is over with a bit of luck we will get off our couches, turn the TV off and participate.
Super swimmer Rebecca Adlington has just pushed her body to the limits to grab a bronze medal in the 400m freestyle at London 2012. Hopefully in a couple of days she will add a gold medal to her collection in the 800m.

It has taken me until towards the end of January before I started my New Yearֳ health drive. In fairness I had cleaned up my diet after Christmas and have been eating healthily but have been a bit slow to get back to exercise three times a week. An ankle injury is now on the mend and have managed to get back into swimming in the last week and plan to return to my five aside team on Tuesday.
Iֶe always been a good swimmer, ever since I was four-years-old I attended swimming lessons at least once a week. However as I got older I fell out of a routine. When I was around 18 and went to university I started getting interested in swimming again.
As the dust begins to settle I can finally take a step back and appreciate the accomplishments of Team Emotional and their completion of the 2011 Ben Nevis Triathlon.
As the saying goes Քime waits for no manՠor in our case waits for no Team! Here we are only days away from our flagship event – The Big Ben Nevis Triathlon – and members are already proposing a truly Emotional day, and I havenִ even mentioned the heavy rain forecast outlined by the Met Office.
Here’s some advice I prepared for the staff at PhysioRoom.com – Team Emotional – in light of our upcoming Ben Nevis triathlon. Use wisely and enjoy!
