5 Days until The Disney World Half Marathon...

Monday, January 07, 2013

I went to my other chiropractor today. It's a tight muscle (not sure what he called it) that is bugging me - it is not my knee. It starts by my hip and goes down the outside of my leg. He pressed a vibrating tool on the muscle. I also got an adjustment. He taught me exercises to continue to stretch it out. I am so happy it's not my knee!

So today I took a break from running. I keep stretching it out. I am going to run three miles tomorrow at lunch break.

I will be leaving Wednesday for Tampa. We are going to visit my 90 year old grandmother, then head to Disney on Thursday.

I am looking forward to the nice, warm Florida weather!

    Good news! Something correctable. :) I'm not there of course, but I agree with Run-Girl that it sounds like IT band, and if that's the case, a foam roller is a miracle worker. Just like any other tight muscle that needs to relax and stretch.

Still catching up on your blogs this week is like doing the WDW countdown all at once, lol. You're gonna be great!

    Good news, I think. Tight muscle sounds easier to fix than a bum knee.

Best of luck at Disney HM!!
