It was a good run.
I got 5 miles in. The first 5 mile since I got sick 2 weeks ago. It was cold, raining, and I felt great!
Then it happened. No not on the run. I was home. I made my Lovely Wife some eggs and was taking them to her.
walked ran up the stairs and my foot slipped. I fell on my knee and… yes… jammed my bad hip. Seriously? I was so angry with myself and in so much pain!
My run was almost perfect. Even though it was close to freezing and raining, I ran great. I ran steady. Outside of my first mile, I kept the same pace the whole time. That is a big deal to me. I tend to vary my pace quite a bit, but this was just steady. It felt good. I felt good. My hip felt good.
Now I’m hurt.
I woke up this morning and didn’t feel as bad as I thought I would. But as the morning has gone on, my hip is getting stiff and sore. I am walking and icing and doing anything I can to keep it mobile which helps.
To be honest, I don’t think I could run today, even if I tried.
Doctors orders will be a week off. I’ll be walking and keeping it moving. I’ll be resting. I’ll be taking anti-inflammatories.
Just to kick my mood up, I purchased a new pair of my running shoes. I love my Brooks Pure Flow 2 shoes and got them for $50 with free 2 day shipping at RunningWarehouse. They will be waiting for me next week as I start my umpteenth comeback from injury. This one was stupid, but an injury is an injury.
Have an awesome weekend. Run, walk, have fun. Life is short.
