Since My 60-day Run Challenge I’ve Developed a PITA

It’s been about 6 weeks since I posted about my 60-Day Run Challenge. I was happy to raise over $700 for our local sexual assault counseling center.

Since then, I have been on and off (more on) the injury couch. After nursing myself, I decided to make an appointment with a sports doctor. I went 2 weeks ago and the verdict is/was tendonitis in my hamstring and glute and some minor hip issues. That being said, I began some short-term physical therapy. The exercises that I have been diligently doing twice a day at home have benefited me greatly.

I have had 3 consecutive pain-free days and am keeping my fingers crossed that it stays that way. A few weeks ago, I had so much pain that it nauseated me. Thank God that is gone.

Through this, I have realized that my trainer and I need to do more core work (which I hate), so along with the PT, they are working together on a program for me.

Hopefully, I will be allowed to begin a walk/run program next week. It has been killing me not to be out on the trail, especially now…this is my favorite season.  Also, I have the “Across the Bay 10k” coming up on Nov. 6th. I know I’m going to probably have to walk it, but if I don’t do it, I’ll just have an expensive tee shirt. Nah…I’m gonna walk it.

So, that’s where I am at.
