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!

    Love her big smile! She is so cute. You must be one proud mama ; )!

    I know the feeling of not being able to run. It really does suck. Don't let it get the best of you. You know you will run again and that is what matters right? Take care and don't make it worse getting back to it too soon!

    Running injuries suck! Think of this as time to find a complimentary activity to crosstrain- only running will lead to more injuries :( Hopefully you will be back at it soon.

    Your daughter is adorable. Time only goes by quicker as they get older so take lots of pictures and enjoy every minute of it emoticon

    Sorry about your injury. Hopefully the week of rest will give your body time to repair.

    Lovely pictures of your daughter. The nine month mark is a nice one!
