Another good and informative video regarding the sacrum and how to treat Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.
Pretty good training run today,only 4 miles but I was able to maintain my tempo for the entire run with only minimal hip discomfort. I have been doing my yoga and exercises for my sacrum issues, which has limited some of the tightness and pain but it is still there. Often I feel it less when running than I do when standing up or walking.
I feel so good today that I almost feel like going for a run during Rylees soccer practice again. I ran from the soccer fields last Wednesday and it was a very good workout as going west is a steady climb that turns into a steep climb before leveling off. Then the way back is a fun if you haven’t spent everything as you can cruise down the hills.
I think everyone needs to try and donate to any one of the agencies who are helping out the victims and survivors of the earthquake in Haiti. $10 isn’t much, but it will make a difference and most of us only need to skip lunch or a few starbucks drinks to cover it. I am somewhat torn on this as it is clear that we have milllions of people here who need help, but in Haiti, they dont have the social assistance structure that we have here. i am sure some “Run for Haiti” events will pop up soon.
Until next time…
I went out today and had my best run outdoors since the San Diego marathon (they have a new website by the way, click and check it out) in May. It was only a little over 4 miles and I purposely went at a slow pace so I could keep tabs on how my hip and sacroiliac joint was feeling (plus I lost most of my fitness and have gained some weight, but I wont admit that last part publicly). It felt good to strap on the Garmin 405, Nike lunar trainers, running clothes and get out on the trail and road. It had been so long I noticed that the golf courses have killed off their grass to overseed.
I really felt pretty good uphill, downhill, flat, and rolling terrain. It did my psyche good as well as I could feel myself getting cranky, moody, and borderline psychotic. So if I could notice it I know everyone around me knew I was being a jerk.
If everything keeps going pretty well with my hip, hopefully I can return to regular training on the roads and trails as well as incorporate the gym into the mix and nail the Sedona Marathon.
If I do get back into training I will need to slow down on all of the great beer I have been drinking recently. Maybe…I know my diet will need to change as I have been eating whatever I want whenever I want. This will be good for me in many areas, hopefully the worst of it is over. Stay tuned…
