How many miles did you run today? - Page 565

post #8461 of 12983
7.1 today.
Good job SB w/ the Half. Good looking medal.
MP - triples? Just such a nice day out that you couldn't stay indoors or the shoes were really really comfortable or training for back to back to back races?

It was a gorgeous day. Low 70s and no humidity. The weather here in Metro Detroit has been great for running so far this spring/summer so I am trying to get in as much as I can before the humidity arrives and suffocates me. Plus, my evening run is usually a nice scenic loop around a local lake and I enjoy seeing all the other folks out too, especially since I am usually out before the sun is up and there isn't much to see.

11.8 this morning with a run down some streets and a corner of town I've never run through. It was in the 50s with low humidity early this morning and this is reportedly supposed to be the last day of springlike weather for a while before some heat settles in.

Decided to make today a double again and got in another 4.5 at lunch. There will be no triple this evening, although there may be a walk to the ice cream shop after dinner.

A lousy 2 miles. The hip/leg therapist really beat me up good today. No ice cream for me.

I am now registered and will be there for the fun!

It's a fun day. Lots of energy everywhere.

Early, this morning, I ran 5 miles (a half-Crim) before the heat and humidity ratchet it up. My pace was slow: 8'40" but it was constant. Getting there....

In my entire life, I've never been really sick or injured. In forty years of teaching, I've missed only five days of school due to illness.

From January to May, I went from one doctor to another and from one therapist to another. (And, I went to some of the most highly respected hip/leg doctors and therapists in SE Michigan.) I was told to "take it easy" and come back in 6 weeks. "Here's a shot to make you feel better." Because of the pain, I did not even feel like doing the most simple exercise. It is easy to baby oneself.

Finally, after getting an MRI and an arthrogram, did the doctor know what was the cause and was not the cause-- there was no bone injury) At the same time, I began working with an exceptional physical therapist who is also a teacher at a local university. After a few weeks, he's got me back on the pavement. It's not pretty, but I'm back.

In retrospect, I wish that I had
  • worked with a trainer to find out what exercises I could do while "taking it easy". I became super un-motivated. Better to do some small things rather than nothing at all. It was painful just to look out the window and watch all the runners passing by our house. It was depressing.
  • insisted on getting an MRI right away. X-rays tell nothing. I feel that so many weeks were wasted while seeking an answer.
  • looked more thoroughly for a therapist who is "up" on all the latest research and theories. Finally, I found a person who is also a university teacher and a research person.
