I knew going into this there would be sucky runs. I just didn’t realize they’d happen right away.
After Sunday’s run I was horrifically sore. It was weird, because I knew that my body just needs to get used to running and adjust to how hard I want to push it, but my right hip and right ankle (the front part between my shin and the top of my foot) hurt BAD. Luckily Monday was a rest day and due to poor planning on my part, I met with the trainer in the AM, told him about my training (and soreness) and we did chest/arms. It was good. I needed to leave my leg alone for a day.
Yesterday - still a bit sore, but better. Thought I’d be all ready for the next run.
Last night I ran with TNT for Run #3 (of 96. I counted.) and we did the same loop around Greenlake that I’d done on Sunday. IT HURT SO BAD. My ankle ached with every step and my right hip just felt…wrong. I ran with a different coach and was just SO discouraged by my joints that…ugh. It wasn’t good.
I iced my ankle and my hip last night and my ankle feels a LOT better today, but not my hip, so I’m going to the chiropractor today - it’s not the first time it’s been sore like this and getting adjusted usually helps. We’ll see what happens. I WILL NOT GIVE THIS UP.
