I was on a lengthy marathon training run when I was sure I had pulled a calf muscle. It hurt a lot and I was sure that my marathon attempt was over. I was pretty sure that it wasn’t going to be helped by a massage or a trip to the doctor’s office, so I consulted “Dr. Google” and tried a number of self-help remedies none of which worked. I had to go to work and when I got there I called Peter. As we talked through it, it was clear it might be protective tightness instead of a pulled muscle. We were going to try a series of neural drills, but the first one fixed the problem! I had to do a little work on my own to make sure it wouldn’t come back, but no more pain, no more tightness and back to marathon training!

I had significant pain in my shoulders for a couple of months. It started one day when I shot too many baskets and got progressively worse from there. I used to be able to do 30-40 pushups and 135 lb. pull downs regularly, but putting dishes in a cabinet became very painful. I had a trip coming up and the thought of trying to put luggage in the overhead bin was frightful. My arm and shoulder muscles were atrophying and my strength was almost non-existent. I had a brief phone call with Peter where we tried a number of things. We found three drills. Two of them immediately relieved the pain in my left shoulder. The other drill helped both shoulders, especially my right. Pain in my right shoulder returned the next day but I continued the drill and saw improvement over a few days until it was pain-free. I started to rebuild my strength. I can now do 90 lb. pull downs and have full range of motion and am continuing to get stronger. I don’t think I ever had any tissue damage, but clearly my brain was protecting me in a way that wasn’t helpful at all. Letting my brain know that my shoulder could function through low-load repetitions of non-threatening movement produced instant results. The change in the functionality of my shoulders is amazing!

I thought my running career was over; now I win Spartan Races!

I should also mention that I have a long history of medical challenges.  I’ve had cancer, been in a horrific car accident and had double carpal tunnel surgeries, among other issues.  The accumulated result was that I had very little upper body strength and mobility which made many of the Spartan obstacles even more challenging!  Try picking up a 75 lb. Atlas stone when you’re 5’2”, your spine doesn’t move much and your grip is virtually non-existent (needed help opening jars).

I had gone for help to a number of practitioners and utilized modalities including chiropractic, physical therapy, hypnosis for the chronic pain and headaches… all without much-lasting success.  Interestingly, my thoracic spine was so locked up from the car accident that none of the chiropractors could fully adjust me!  A fellow Spartan racer recommended that I see Grove Higgins and I did.  Grove has a unique blend of neurology, biomechanics, soft tissue and chiropractic skills and mastery in each.  He, too, tried to adjust my spine, but when it didn’t work, the difference in his approach became apparent.  Instead of quitting, recommending 12 visits for more of the same or recommending heat or massage as the others did, he shifted lenses to a neurological approach.  If my spine was being held tight protectively by my brain, what else could we do to reduce the the threat and get it to loosen its grip?

It started with improving joint mobility in other areas of my body that could move.  I now understand that improving your brain’s map of your movement capabilities reduced overall threat substantially.  I also had brain trauma from the car accident and a previous history of vestibular issues (couldn’t hang upside down without the world spinning).  We worked on improving my sensory (vision and balance) and breathing skills.  The accumulated reduction in threat from mobility, sensory and breathing work relaxed my brain’s hold on my spine to the point where it could be adjusted and we could work on more active movement and control like posture.

It didn’t stop there though.  Grove, being a multi-skilled athlete himself, quickly grasped the other skills I would need to successfully complete in Spartan racing.   Once we had mobility and posture we were able to address sport-specific strength and coordination.  As a result, I’ve improved dramatically.

I recognize that the bulk of NeuroRunner’s audience might have an “Interesting, but what does this have to do with running?” reaction to what I’ve related so far.  So let me add this.  My running has improved immensely through this process!  I never realized how much spinal mobility and arm strength would translate into running endurance and power.  I also never understood the value of sensory and mobility training, and even shoes (I’ve switched to zero-drop) in injury prevention.  On the descent of the Pikes Peak Marathon in 2009, I managed to fall twice, sprain both ankles (I have an enduring relationship with ankle sprains, too) and pull both hamstrings!  Since working with Grove, I’ve rolled my ankle once or twice, amazingly without consequence!  My improved mobility and body map made this a total non-event.  All of this has improved my skill and confidence in downhill running which played into my performance in Breckenridge.

Perhaps most importantly, it has allowed me to continue to run.  Previously, whenever I ran a significant distance, tension accumulated in my neck and upper back to the point where I had migraines.  I thought I would have to give up running anything over a 10K.  That has cleared up as a result of the work I’ve done with Grove.  I now can not only continue to race, but continue to improve.  And I can offer hope to my friends who think they might have to give up running for some nagging injury or pain, too!

I’ve really enjoyed the personal challenge of triathlon over the years. I’ve done four Ironman races including the World Championships in Kona, as well as a variety of triathlon distances over the years – Sprint to Half, and Xterra. While I’ve had some personal successes, I’ve also had challenges with gut issues and feel like I have yet to do my best, so I have more to prove to before I’m done with the sport.

After my last race three years ago, a combination of job workload and a weird recurring injury (Morton’s Neuroma?) pretty much reduced my activity to nothing (maybe an occasional hike). Then, I felt the urge to race again, even though my injury had not cleared up, and picked the AZ Ironman race for my return. I had performance and “gut issue” goals to measure my success.

I discovered that the time off had really taken its toll – my ability to train was significantly limited. I started with some very light bike rides six months before the race. About three months out, I “amped up” my training, if you can call it that. In total, I was only able to do about 20 rides before the race, a few of them were 3 hours and the rest shorter – 2 hours or less. I got to the pool five times, accumulating 35 minutes of continuous swimming, and never more than 15 minutes in one session. Running wise, I did a total of 3 run/walks of 10 minutes each (after three of the rides). My total training load over the months was only a small fraction of what I have done in the past. Additionally, I trained nowhere near the actual discipline distances I would be covering in the race.

Two weeks before the race I decided to do a daily regime of respiration training (breathing drills), because I was going to need any help I could get just to complete this race, let alone meet any pre-race objectives. I spend about 45 minutes every day on various inspiration and expiration drills in the hope that it would make some difference in my performance. As it would turn out, the results were mind-blowing!

I swam 2.4 miles in 1:20, just 4 minutes off my Kona time! I was purposefully trying to take it easy, but I never expected to feel as great as I did. My breathing was never challenged which is really unusual for an IM swim under any circumstance, and I felt great getting out of the water. The bike was even better! I finished 10 minutes off my best time (on the same course) and 10 minutes better than Kona! My speed was better than any of the bike training I had done (which preceded respiration training), and yet I felt like I was riding very comfortably below my lactate threshold, but still with power for the whole 112 miles! My run/walk was about on par with prior IMs, but I had already had way more success than I felt I deserved. I had the usual leg fatigue and crisis to push through but generally felt fresher and less winded than prior IMs. Even my recovery was quite normal. Using Z-Health drills, I’d always been able to recover fairly quickly, and I saw no differences this time despite the massive training deficit.

All in all, I was amazed at how much respiration training and relaxed racing made up for my injury, time off and lack of mileage! I can’t wait to try it again when I’m healthier and better trained.​
