This morning I got up early and ran with the Vardos at 6:00. Rachael went with me. We ran some ladies a little older than me at a little slower pace. I needed that as I was contemplating doing the 6-mile loop twice for a total of 12 today. Anticipating the school sprint tri on Monday and reflecting on the big week, I opted for just the single 6-miler. This turned out to be a good thing.
My shins have started to hurt, but worse, my left hip was all out of whack. I finally had enough, feeling like my left hip was about 3" higher than my right and trying to walk was a chore. I called the chiropractor who got me in right away. I had a nagging glitch in my neck that wouldn't go away either. Tonight my hips seemed to have gone back to uncomfortable. We went for a slow walk to try to work out the kink, but no luck.
Tonight I ran with my trainee. Fortunately it was not a speed run, but a really slow run so I hobbled along. I think that really helped. I felt better afterwards. We'll see how tomorrow looks. Boy, those Vardos are hard on me.
