The Sisterhood is a place to bring your cup of coffee to. Heck, bring the whole pot :). Sit down, relax, and fall in for a while. No divas or meanies allowed. It's about boy brain, kiddos, food, one crazy labrador, autism and a cat in recovery from a back tire incident. Oh the places you'll go :)

The Trouble With The Run

on October 1, 2012

Today, the running was not so good.

When I was a younger girl…five years ago…I could run three days in a row and feel GREAT.  This time around, not so much.  I have been trying to walk/run two days in a row and then take a day off but my body is just not having it.  At ALL.  I thought I could just power through but, I will admit, the ego took a pretty deep hit today as I realized that, even though what I do is an animated walk/walk…I still can’t do it like I used to.  My body is still not up to it.

Strangely, even though I have never experienced a running injury, I am feeling it in my hips lately.  My right hip to be exact.  It’s an ouchie thing that I have never had before.  I pride myself on my slow pace, the fact that I do not train for long runs and that has always been my reasoning why I don’t have leg or hip pains from my runs.  Now, I just don’t know what is up.  I go slow, I am an animated walker for goodness sake, and I only go for ten minutes or so and still….I hurt.  Age is clearly not my friend.

So, I will back off.   I will not stop.  Nope…I can’t stop because I sure am liking this reshaping my body is currently involved in and I like that my body is starting to feel like it’s mine again.  What I will do is back off and do my animated walk every other day.  I can still go out for a walk because the walk doesn’t seem to do any damage.  For now, I will box up the ego and put it on a shelf because it’s pretty ugly right now and the old ego doesn’t need to see this.  Not even my ego needs to watch what the last five years of inactivity has reduced my body to.

So, I’ll walk on…slowly.  With a tidbit of animation when my hips feel up to it and hopefully, over the next few months, my hips will get readjusted and seasoned so that the wimpy right side can withstand the road back to sort of real-running 🙂
