Resting training 5/12-5/18/14

After re-tweaking my hip on Tuesday, I ended up taking the rest of the week really easy trying to sort it out.  No more running and as little walking as possible until it was feeling better.  I was able to go for a walk Sunday night without pain, but running still feels out of the question.  I still want to play it super safe to make sure I make it to the starting line (and the finish!) of Bayshore on Saturday.

I walked to work this morning (Monday), which is about 2 miles, and I felt probably just as good as my walk Sunday night, but my hip still feels weak and volatile.  Once the pain is completely gone, I want to work on strengthening it with some bodyweight work.  I have some PT exercises I have been neglecting.

Monday: rest

Tuesday: 6mi run during which I messed up my hip again (didn’t notice till that night)

Wednesday: yoga before bed

Thursday: rest

Friday: at-home strength workout, mostly core and a bit of arms

Saturday: rest

Sunday: Walked a little less than 4 miles with Matt

Total running: 6 miles, but it’s fine. 🙂

  1. Take it easy 🙂 one of my PRs came after taking 2 weeks off prior to race day because of foot pain. The race hurt, but I could at least finish it.

    1. Last year, I took 12 days off before Bayshore until running the evening before the race (I had peroneal tendinitis), and that is still my half marathon PR. xD

    1. Thank you! I’m feeling better today than yesterday (no pain, just a pulling feeling), so I’m going to keep being patient and hope that if I don’t run today I will feel even better tomorrow!

  2. So, I’m new and don’t know all the details with your hip but BE CAREFUL!!! I’ve had a stress fracture in each hip in the past number of years and it isn’t something to mess around with. At 31 (much older than you are now but….) I had a DR threaten me with a hip replacement – thankfully I made it without one and now at 44 still run (stronger than ever) but hips aren’t something to mess with!
    OK – so, now that I have sounded like your mom and I don’t even know you, I will scroll around and read some more:)

    1. Seriously thank you for the concern! I definitely want to be very careful and make sure this thing is healed. I just might be making a bit of a detour by running a (slow) half marathon on Saturday… I won’t do it if it hurts though and I will probably take more time off after.

      Thanks for reading! 🙂
