I sound like a sap these days, but i’m just so happy to be running again. It’s slow going—only up to a mile and a half—but who cares, right? I’m running and my mile(s) are increasing.
My hip is feeling a lot better, too. That has nothing to do with the running, though. Once the doc told me what was causing the pain, I knew what I needed to do differently in order to decrease that pain. Now that i’m paying attention to how I walk, how I sit and how I perform even the most basic movements, the pain is nearly gone. Granted, long car rides still bother me and that won’t change, but at least i’m not in pain all the time.
I make it sound so easy. I never realized how often my everyday movements cause me to spread my legs (you know what I mean) and slightly squat: getting dressed, getting in to bed, getting in and out of a car. I really have to pay attention. Oh well, just a part of life now. And like I said, i’m not hurting all the time! Small price to pay if you ask me.
