I have a bit of a flare-up of my old piriformis pain that's making me crazy! I've been stretching it, and rolling it, and even brought one of Princess's hard rubber bouncy balls to work with me today and have rolled on it several times right in my desk chair :-o (bet THAT looked funny through my office window!) It's helping, but, wowser, that puppy is sore! The thing I'm most worried about is the domino effect when I run. If I favor the glute, I whack out my hip, and if I whack out my hip, I trigger ITband issues again, which means not being able to run, which makes Emma a very sad girl :-(
So, hopefully, if I am diligent, I'll be able to nip this in the bud and not have to take time off from running or other workouts.
It helps to look at the bright side - there are many people out there who have to deal with very difficult physical challenges every day. I'm such a whiner for complaining about a little pain in the butt.
