A quick update as I need to get to work and didn’t get a chance to write this last night…
The Chiropractor went really well. He took x-rays and said that everything looked great. He did an adjustment that really did seem to help, but I was sore afterwards. He then gave me some exercises to do and said that if I get my muscular issues taken care of, he thinks my pace will improve quite a bit. I hope so!
One interesting thing. This morning was the first morning in a LONG TIME that I walked down the steps after I woke up and had almost no pain! Don’t get me wrong, my hip is still hurting a little, but my body wasn’t sore and my legs felt good. That could the be the Chiropractor or the fact I’ve had 3 days off from running. Either way, I’ll take it!!!
So he told me to take yesterday off and that I could run again today. He then called me last night to see how I was doing. I go back tomorrow morning for another round of adjustments.
Today, after work I’ll be running for the first time since Sunday. I really thing this has been a good thing. I felt like my body fell apart Sunday and I hope seeing this Chiropractor will begin getting me back in the running mode for the marathon.
BTW, I forgot to mention we have signed up for a 5K this weekend. It is a fun race at 6:00 in the evening. Summer evening, 5K, in the South – I can’t wait. If I have too, I’ll walk the course; but I don’t think that will happen. 🙂
