    Here is one of the MRI images.

    And yes, that is the brain stem that wrote Distraction. (The cerebral cortex was not involved.)

    I am jealous of your access to MRI and proper footwear.

    The Adamantium grafts are holding up well at least.

    Thanks for noticing. They hurt me terribly at first. But when the healing factor kicked in, all was well.

    Great for gardening, peeling potatoes, lulz with fingernails on the blackboard.

    Oh, and I got free steak knives, too (superfluous, of course - but I appreciated the gesture).

    I'm on the waiting list. No, really.

    The shoe thing is more my own fault.

    so, like, your uterus is in your neck?

    Did you learn-yo'self how to run yet?!?
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    I'm not sure. I just try to keep a nice, steady rhythm, and not bounce up and down too much.

    Hey guys, reading the thread and figured I'd chime in since, well, I'm a runner - a six day a week - nothing under 5 miles type that races in 5ks, 10ks and Half-Marathons.
    I also have recovered from not one -but two herniated disks. Running actually helped with that as I got HUGE from not being able to do anything while I was healing . . . that being said - here's my two cents worth.

    If your doctors have cleared you to run - then run.

    You've got shoes that fit so you don't have to worry about that.

    Because of where you injury is - other muscles are probably holding or covering for the injured area. It happened with my disks, I lost a lot of flexibility and I still "move funny" when doing certain things - not because I hurt when I move that way - it's just how my body adapted too work around the injury. To protect itself. Bodies have funky memories . . .

    And last but not least . . . running form! Lot's of begining runners have similar pain issues (though not so pronounced, pry due to your injury). It comes from tensing up the when you run. So, you're not alone. I'd worry less about perfect form. In the running world people talk about form all the time. Think less about form and more about efficiency. i've seen world champions race with crappy form - but it works for their bodies. If you can run without injury - then you're fine with whatever form you use. If you get injured - then look for where you can change it.
    I used to be a heavy heel striker - I got plantar fasciitis as a result. I taught myself to land more mid-foot. Now I run six days a week without injury -but it took time.
    Odds are - due to you injury, you are locking down or tensing up to protect the body from further injury - so when you run, you are very tense. The only way to fix it is to learn to relax, breathe and to run with a sense of ease in the upper body. I would check out Runner's World.com. Go in and search around for articles on this issue. In fact I think this month or last month addressed this very issue with an article.
    Runners' world tends to have great articles and sample training programs for begining runners - so check it out.
    I know begining runners who get headaches, severe back pain - the whole nine yards because they run so locked down - or by the end of their run their shoulders are up to thier ears.
    It's no different than when you learn to ukemi - if you do it all tense - you hurt - or you get hurt until you learn to do it right.
    Also this may sound stupid - but instead of trying to run relaxed . . . try running with a feeling of ease. It's strange that how you word something or think about something affects how your body/mind processes it. Good luck and check out the articles at Runner's World - lots of good stuff for beginners!
