Running closer

I’m feeling better today.  Yesterday was a pretty rough day and knowing that my hip was not better really made it difficult.

I got home and walked 3 miles.  It was nice out and I had a good walk.

I realize that my SI joint seems to be loosening up and my pain is down about 80% this morning.  I plan on walking for the next few days just to make sure I don’t over do it.

Thanks everyone for the advice and encouragement.  In the past 17 months, running has really become a part of my identity.  I don’t think I would have stuck with it if it hadn’t.  The issue with that is when it is taken away for a period of time, it really messes with me.  I know many of you have gone through the same thing.

Have a great day, and run a mile for me. 🙂

  1. Glad you are playing it safe. No matter how much it’s killing you not to run. Think of it this way – it’s far better to skip running now than trying to push thru this and ending up on the shelf for an extended period of time. Remind yourself of that when you start struggling with the lack of running.

  2. Tom, you can have two of my miles if you’re willing to wait until Sunday.
    In the meantime keep enjoying the walks and I hope your SI joint sorts itself.
