Recovering from my bad hip has been a long, slow, painful process but .... it is getting there. As I slug through this injury it has become very clear that most of my injuries and physical problems over the last year are weight related.
I had a foot injury in November that led to no running for 6 weeks. That led to being under trained for my February half marathon. That led to, what was probably, an over use injury running a March Half Marathon on too little training. 2 1/2 months later after not doing the simple things I would recommend for any of my injured athletes I was still hobbled.
The chiropractor has helped a great deal. A massage helped. A trip back to my regular doc helped. Ice helped. Daily eercise has really helped. A week ago I had serious doubts about the GLR (Great Lakes Relay). Now I am pretty sure I will be slow but able to run my legs.
For the millionth time I am vowing to never be here again. I hate being injured and out of shape. Weight is the key.
