I am in week 6 of not running & week 3 of Physical Therapy for my Hipflexor & Periformis issue, aka the Pain in the Butt. Thanks to not running, deep tissue massage, pain patches & strengthening exercises I am feeling much better. Not 100% better but at least I no longer feel pain 100% of the time. Now I only feel pain when I do certain movements.
After this weeks session my PT told me to go on a 30 minute test walk this weekend. Yay! Although, if I am being honest, I was planning on going on that walk regardless with the new ladies run group in Lexington. I am going nuts without being able to run. I was hoping to be running again by Halloween but now I am thinking it may be closer to Thanksgiving. Ugh, can it really only be a month until Thanksgiving already?!
