Well, the lifestyle change from now having to commute seems to be taking over my little blog. That and September has been the month from hell at work, and is promising a grand finish....
I ran last Wednesday, and it felt good, but the soreness in my hips from my toes turning out is definitely an issue to address. I took Friday off as a result because I don't want to cause injury to myself. If it were just sore muscles that would be one thing, but I don't know I'm not hurting myself.
Sunday DH and I went for a 13 mile bike ride. That was quite a bit of work and also fun. I am finding it is true that you can push yourself harder on a bike with much less pain than you can running.
I ran again on Monday, a shorter run--30 min exercise but only 20 minutes running. That went pretty well. I was less sore after, and less sore today. Honestly I stood in the boat shivering in my pj's this morning debating my run. It was dark. It would feel good. I was groggy and headachy. How were the hips? Seemed ok....but I surrendered to the darkness and the dark forces and didn't go. I will go on Friday though.
I've made an appointment with a podiatrist, but it isn't until Oct 30. I don't think it's quite what I need, but I have to start somewhere to fix this problem. I don't intend to give up running. In the meantime I will be listening closely to my body and probably doing a few less, or shorter runs, and more bicycling.
