Yeah Art, roller, ice, hot showers followed by stretching...that's it so far. This regimen worked for a serious case in my other knee about 6 years ago, so I'm hoping this time isn't as bad.
Just came in from an easy 5K, ~27 minutes, all pretty flat. No pain at all, just the begins of a little tightness in the last half mile. I'm hoping I can get it under control soon.
As for Zion, I could swing late September if that's best. Last weekend of September or first of October? What's everyone thinking?
Where can you stay/camp for this run? Is the main park out of the way from the start/finish?
EDIT: Mikes plan sounds good to me....
....Had a vision for some Trans Zion medals on my run just now. Let's just say heavy metal themed metallic gunmetal medallions, complete with lightning bolts and thick stainless steel neck chains.
We gotta do it now!
