Hello All, I'm back to my TMS protocol to get rid of some pain. I took a year and a half off of training for any events (mostly triathlons) due to life kinda taking over. The last event was back in Sept 2015 which was a half ironman. But I feel like I need to train for something as I've not only gained 10 lbs but I feel like I'm really missing it. I love running, biking, swimming! So I have chosen a very short triathlon in June to train for. I started with a short bike and run on Saturday and then on Sunday my right knee started hurting. So I'm back to my protocol... (copy/pasted from a prior post) I do whatever I could to get myself to believe 100% it is TMS. This is very important. If I am struggling with this, I do the best I can and continue with the rest of the protocol. The more I get rid of fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) the more progress I make and the more I believe. It's a positive upward spiral if I remain consistent. Consistently on a daily basis I purposefully introduce TMS/PPD knowledge into my conscious mind and therefore, indirectly into my subconscious mind. In my case, I listen to (or read) a book, parts of the Master Practice or the SIRPA Recovery CD whenever I can, (or Dr Schecters CD too) but minimum 15 minutes daily. I resume normal activity as much as my pain will allow. I stop any treatments (except icing) or searching outside of myself for a cure. If I don't do this I am sending a message to my subconscious that I don't believe this is TMS/PPD. It took some time before I jumped on this wagon due to doubts, but after I did, I began to get better. Lastly, whenever I feel the pain, think about pain, or even just think about my affected area, I force my mind to think clean (as Monte calls it) (i.e. focus on my thoughts, feelings, and TMS personality traits --- not the pain). Pulling out my mantra card was a simple, but effective way for me to habituate the process of thinking psychological. Anyone else going through some pain issues while exercising?
