I love it. You make plans, and then something comes along and ruins them. For me it’s an injury. I don’t really want to call it an injury, but I don’t know what else to call it.
I have a niggling pain in my right glue, that sometimes radiates down my leg. It doesn’t happy all the time, and not when I am walking or running, but I can stand and twist a little, or stretch in a certain way, it will hurt. And then my left hip started to hurt yesterday. I decided to research a little and it sounds like it has something to do with piriformis syndrome.
What is piriformis syndrome? Basically it sounds exactly what I described, a pain in the butt (or glute, I guess, if we are being technical) that can radiate down the leg… Yep – sounds like me.
I’m going to try and do yoga, stretch, and try to recover over the next week. If it still hurts next Monday I will try to get to see someone – I have no idea who I see for sports injuries, maybe a physical therapist? I’ll look into it. I really think I just need to build strength in the area, so I will try to do that. I really just want to be in the best shape I can be before starting my marathon training.
Here is a time lapse of my headstand I have been working on! Love doing fun stuff in yoga.
I am also not going to start the BBG for another week, just to give myself a break. Fingers crossed that next week I will be good to go!
