Couch to 5 5 Week 4 Day 2 - First Setback

Friday, June 24, 2011

My hip pain has not gone away. I adjusted my bed and woke up feeling like it was less so I started out with my Couch to 5K Week 4 training this morning but had to quit before the last 5 minute run because my hip was really starting to bother me. I quit when I felt a great big tear roll down my face!! It was painful just to walk the rest of the way home. So I will be taking some rest days until it clears up and then try to figure out if I should pick up where I left off or backtrack a little bit. I have extra weeks built into my schedule before I run a race so I have plenty of time to finish the training program. Part of me is tempted to do some other cardio while I am waiting but all the videos I have a pretty high impact so I will just have to be patient. I already have 2 days rest coming up right now so I'll just extend that and instead of Monday, I will see how I feel on Tuesday. I am disappointed but feel OK about waiting a little bit in hopes of healing.

    I agree. Your body is telling you to rest. Take the time you need and you will be back to running in no time. emoticon
