Training not going so well

August 2nd, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Things haven’t been going as well as I’d hoped. A week after I started jogging again, I got some pretty bad pain in my hip, more specifically my hip flexor. It feels like the same pain I had when I tried running for the first time back in March. At first the pain only happened right after a jog. After a few days of gritting my teeth, the leg began hurting all the time, even on my off days. As of now, I can’t walk right and I’m in pain almost all the time.

I think I’m finally realizing that having a job that requires being in excellent physical condition might not be in my future anymore.

I see an Army doc at Hanscom Air Force Base in a week. Hopefully I’ll know more then.

    Whatever the outcome, you are and will always be a Marine. Your spirit of never giving up is what “Esprit de corps” is all about! I will keep you in my prayers.

    Semper Fi,

    I’m really sorry to hear about your hip and the issues that continue. Please know that there are many Marine Mom’s, like myself, who are pulling for you every day. It is the toughest job you’ll ever have, and it’s tough for mom’s too! ;-) Hang in there. Keep the faith in yourself and know that we are all pulling for ya. My Marine has ongoing health issues too, so I can understand the frustration you are dealing with. This too shall pass.

    Semper Fi!
    A Marine Mom
