Sometimes the hardest run is the one that never happens.
I decided not to run yesterday as my hip is not good at all. I made it to the Chiropractor and that was helpful. I’d say my pain went down by half after he adjusted me. So I went home and decided to walk with a thought in the back of my mind that if I warmed up and felt well after a mile or two that I might go ahead and run a little.
That didn’t happen.
I was still in pain. Someone at work said that it sounds like my SI joint. It probably is now that I think about it. About 12 years ago I was in so much pain in that same joint that I couldn’t even walk. So I guess I’ve aggravated it all over again.
Last night I put heat on it and took Ibuprofen. That seemed to help. I must say that today it still hurts, but not nearly as bad. I just have to do the mature thing and not run until it is better. Sometimes I hate maturity. 🙂
Tonight TJ and I are going to a meeting at a local running store to prepare for our half marathon in February. This is the same race we ran last year, but we are interested in preparing with a running group. We live about 35 minutes away, so it is hard sometimes to get out with people, but it is time to do what we have to in order to be able to run with a group.
That is it for today. I am hoping to run this afternoon, but it is looking doubtful (that whole maturity thing again). Either way I’ll write about it tomorrow.
I can’t wait for the weekend. I hope I can run!
