I heART!!!

Holy enchilada, Active Release Techniques--aka ART (R)--is frickin A-mazing.

Turns out my malady is a tight left hip flexor that is creating a domino effect of tension and pain on the rest of my left leg, hip and back. After a little ART on the flexor and hip, I can move without pain....and touch my toes again! Yay!

My homework is to do yoga (ok, yes, I admit that skipping yoga the past two months was a very, very bad idea), stretch my hip flexor, more ART on Friday...and yes, in all likelihood I can run the Rocky Mountain Half Marathon on Sunday.


  1. Yay! I've been meaning to check that out, sounds amazing. I have tight hips/low back too. And thanks for reminding me to do my yoga!

  2. Yay!!! I kind of want to hurt something so I can test out this ART thing. I've heard so much about it. :o)

    Good luck this weekend!

  3. Woo-hoo! Very rare to encounter a miracle cure like that, but ain't it great when you do? That cloud of doom just magically lifts and life ... well. life is worth living again, isn't it?

    Happy for you, sister! Good luck with the half marry!

  4. Glad the ART worked so well for you! Good luck on Sunday.

  5. Very nice. But will you be eating an enchilada pre-race? I wasn't sure how that fit in exactly. I recommend against.
