Being stupid

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

So I’m training for my first marathon. It’s in 12 days. I wanted to do 3 twenty mile runs. I needed to squeeze a 14 miler in between. Well to get the last one in I had to do it back to back weeks. So 7 days apart. Needless to say that was dumb. So now I have bursitis in my right hip. Went to the dr to get a ortho referral yesterday. Now on to a cortisone injection tomorrow. The good thing is that it doesn’t hurt when I run since that’s when the joint is lubricated. It’s when I’m not working out it’s sore. I’ve been off of it since last Friday and icing it. I can’t take nsaids. So hoping for the best tomorrow. I will run on Jan 27th and then rest up after to let it heal. Then will strengthen my hips more.

    FYI, for the future, one 20 mile run would have you ready! If you can do 20, you are ready to do 26.2! Rest and get ready for the taper now. You got this, Warrior! You've been through a hell of a lot worse!

    I did my first on Oct 22. (Marine Corps Marathon) I trained solid for 5 months. All about the training! Race Day, I could have done a 50K! (31miles)
    Can't wait to hear about your 1st. You never forget!

    Yup that’s the plan I’m resting it and going to the Dr tomorrow. I haven’t trained since last Friday
