the worst part about running (besides a full 45 minutes of constantly thinking to myself of how much i want to die) is sweating like a pig for hours afterwards. seriously. i could lift for a good hour plus in 20 plus degrees celsius in my garage, be soaked in sweat, take a shower and be fine. now any more than half an hour of running leaves me dripping with sweat for hours afterwards... its been an hour since i finished my run and i still have a fan blasting my face with sweat dripping off of it. ugh.
i think running is helping my elbow, strangely enough. at about 15 minutes in, when the blood is really pumping, i get 100% full ROM, no pain, no nothing, like nothing ever happened. the stiffness and pain has returned post-run, so i guess i just need to keep blood flowing to the area constantly. i would friggin love to see what's going on mechanically on the inside to know why and how this is happening. i've gone from carpal tunnel to tennis elbow to trigger points to thoracic outlet syndrome back to trigger points then tennis elbow again... every day i think its something else, i just need to keep massaging out my scalenes, serratus posterior superior, infraspinatus, lats, stretch all of the above, do controlled eccentric stuff for the forearm... i am making steady progress at least.
