We're going to NYC on holiday this summer. One thing, among many, that I'm looking forward to is running in Central Park. I've been to NYC twice before but never as a runner.
I've obviously been thinking about it and planning it with last night's dream giving me the answer!
The question being how not to let running kit stink out a hotel room? I thought about maybe some special travel wash or stuff like that.
My dream, though, had the answer.
Wear, run, sweat, wick repeat. Does not smell and does not need washing.
A couple pairs of socks and a t-shirt and sorted!! So that's the answer and it came in a dream....
Who says I'm obsessed with running??

I'm not running at the moment.
Injuries again, I thought it was piriformis giving me sciatic referral pain. This, it appears was incorrect. The issue, or one of them, is sciatica. Lower back stiffness the probable cause. This caused by running, lots of running, and core work.
I also have an inflamed sacroiliac - this is a ligament not a muscle. It's in the hip and is a shock absorber.
I've also strained my psoas. I did this doing lunges with 2 x 50kg kettle bells. I lie, they were 10kg each - no really.
The fix for these is not that elusive. Quad stretches, back stretches and a lay off from running.
I'd already determined to take February off from running so while not ideal it was easy to accept.
More physio on Monday means massage and ultrasound.
The lesson? There's always a lesson. As good as google is it isn't a trained professional physiotherapist. We, runners, think we know all this stuff but we don't.
Professional diagnosis people.
