Seriously? I've suffered from MRI-confirmed tendinosis of both quad heads for a long time, years. My ortho guy told me only no riding would fix it but knowing I was a high mileage cyclist, he doubted it would never fully heal. Now, I only need to walk down stairs or a big hill!

So, how steep, how far, and how often? I need to know.

Had my tour not been cancelled I was scheduled to visit Gem Mountain tomorrow. It's a sapphire mine where you buy buckets of dirt and wash it for sapphires. I was there in 2014. Sounds corny, but it was actually a lot of fun, and the staff is very friendly. It's so popular now that you have to reserve a timeslot. This morning I learned that the place was forced to close because a worker got the virus, forcing most of the remainder of the staff has to quarantine.

The employee who showed me how to wash the dirt insisted on taking this photo as I was leaving. She also offered to give me a ride back into town if I couldn't get through the washed out section of the pass I was about to climb.

Oh, man. I'm at a loss.

We will have to look it up. I have never used it for quad, but I have used it to fix my tennis elbow and Achilles.

The number of ways y'all could be dealing with me still trying to find someone...

Now that I think about it, I wonder of splitting the shipment would have gotten around even that. The wheels weren't sold as a pair, so I could have placed two orders, both under $800. I just don't know if customs keeps a running tally within a certain window.

Definitely a thing for the quad and patellar tendinosis, says a quick Google. Looks like stepping down sideways is a good way.

Somewhere along the line, I was taught that tensing/pulling for a couple seconds while stretching was a good way to stretch, so that's how I've stretched the guads for years (though I probably only stretch after one out of three rides, or so). It does really seem to help more than not doing it.

I believe thatís a different thing. A momentary contraction during a stretch iactivates the tendon organs, which inhibit the stretch reflex at the spinal level, thereby relaxing the muscle and allowing it to lengthen. Eccentric contraction reeorganizes muscle and tendon structure by non-neural means.

I go to my my basement numerous times a day. Iíll have to work on that. My left is worse than my right so I assume that you lead with that leg.

Off to google!

Very sad news. This must be the day of rue that Pcad was always warning us about. :(

Stairs may not be the best way. ...and donít go coo coo, young man.

Might be a "friends only" share kind of thing. He's the pic.
