OK...gushiness aside. Today's hip report is about the same as yesterday's...that is--no change so far. I was beside myself with grief today when I woke up. Somehow I thought that I'd wake up and the hip-fairies would have come in the middle of the night and magically taken all my hip-pains away. Imagine my disappointment when I got out of bed this morning and my first step on my left foot was felt in my hip-joint...GAH!
I do have a picture of the bag-o-peas in my pants
OK...its a picture of me with a bulge on my hip. Really my hips are not quite that lumpy; that's what it looks like when you have a bag of peas stuck down your pants. What EXACTLY were you expecting?
So...I'm a little sad, but optimistic that the hip-fairies will come tonight. (I'm being Peter-Pan like and saying over and over, "I do believe in hip-fairies. I do believe in hip fairies"...maybe if you all say it with me, they'll arrive in the middle of the night and fix my hip...it could happen.)
Sooooo....since I needed diversions to keep my mind off of my hip, we went to the beach yesterday. We had some relatives from NoCal in town, and since it's 85º in January here...the beach is the place to be...now let me tell you the ocean water is cooooooooold, but kids don't care.
In other diversions. The SDTC has some photos of the last two week's runs. Here's one of me yesterday, before the popping incident.
BBJ and I had a good giggle after our run when we learned that when doing squats or lunges "if your butt's in the air, you're doing it right." Food for thought.
Finally. Meet Scotty, the newest member of our running group
Scotty has a REALLY interesting way of making new friends. (Oh and thanks to BBJ for pointing out the photo to me. I'd completely missed it the first time through)
I'm hoping to hear from the sports therapist tomorrow...
Finally...a huge congrats to all who ran in today's PF Chang's 1/2 and full marathons. I'm looking forward to all the race reports.
