Running Injury (and baby pics)

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Actually it isn't so bad. After 5 months of steady training with no injuries and wondering what all the fuss was about, I managed to give myself bursitis of the hip from my race. I tried to ignore it and even though I told myself I was going to take it super easy the week after the race of course I failed, and ended up making it worse.

So I "grounded" myself and said NO RUNNING for a week. This is KILLER for me. I run almost every day and I am so miserable. I tried hot yoga, I tried some strength cross training, but basically I am "angry eating" and getting pretty dang grumpy. I have tried foam rolling (I don't have one, but I used a friends) and ice packs, but I think it is just going to take time. UGH. The very worst. I can't WAIT to run!

In other news my baby is now 9 months old. This is an odd time for us Mums, 9 months in, and 9 months out (though the out months have gone by 100 times faster, how did that happen?)

It is also an amazing transition over here. She has started taking a few steps and is getting so independent! It is crazy, but also amazing to watch her personality come out more and more. She is so wild!
