Training not going so well

August 2nd, 2007 2 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.

13 month update

April 2nd, 2007 2 comments

Training was going well until last Tuesday when I took a class at my gym that was a little too rough on my leg. I thought I would just take a couple days to rest, but those two days turned into almost a week and I haven’t been back out running yet. The good news is before last Tuesday I was running 2 days/week, and had gotten my run time down to 8:37 minute/mile. Hopefully I’ll be able to run this week and start adding a little more distance.
