Just trying to make progress on a goal. Takes a lot of patience and faith to go through a process that hopefully will yield a result months down the road. Milestones are important. Last 2K, 6:58.1, was Oct 9. Need another one soon.

I debate even posting this. Not good news for me. Developed strong case of piriformis syndrome since my last decent row 2.5 weeks ago. Can't straighten leg without pain in butt [try rowing]. Sciatica down leg, calf, ankle. After about 12 days of this and using heat and ice, go to sports medicine orthopedist. Course, it's a crap shoot. Not like I can get 5 of them on a conference call and find who has a clue about the piriformis. So this dude, fairly reluctantly, injects a steroid. He had only a vague idea of what he was doing. The real way to do it is with fluoroscopy to direct the needle. No real progress since injection. Will have to take another turn at another place in a week or so. This is going to take weeks to get resolved - and that is best case. For now, the end of 2K fast time hunting. Need to refocus anyway. BTW, injury not from rowing, but won't go into all of that.

I'm sorry to hear that.
I hope it is resolved soon.
