In my last training truths post, I told you my plan to give my cranky hamstring the break it needed to cheer up. No such luck.
My plans for running 3 days instead of 4 last week went out the window on Monday when I found my little hamstring/hip problem had worsened and I could not walk without pain. So instead of logging miles, I was rolling, icing, and popping ibuprofen.
Monday & Tuesday - lots of TLC, and some easy core challenge work. I spent 48 hours thinking that I should not have run 9 miles on Sunday.
Wednesday - finally feeling some improvement, I walked 2.14 miles on the treadmill while working on the computer plus completed my daily dose of core work.
Thursday - rolled & iced before spending about 6+ hours in the car driving to Maine to pick up my step daughter from her summer job.
Friday - walked 2.1 miles on the TM and got caught up on my core challenges. I made the bad decision to do skater jumps which fired the hip pain up again.
Saturday - took a complete rest day from all exercise. (but I really wanted to lace up my Mizunos and go for a run).
Sunday - Early morning core workout for two days and an afternoon walking workout of 3.5 miles on the TM.
As much as I want to run today, I'm forcing myself to wait until I see my chiropractor on Tuesday. I am hoping that I will feel better after my adjustment and can go for a run.
What is the longest break you have taken from your running/sport? The longest for me was after the RnR Providence in 2011.
