I’ve been working with a physical therapist to help me figure out why I’ve been having so much left leg inner-thigh pain. It’s has been bothering me for nearly two months now, and it’s what ended my 725-day running streak. Thankfully, I’ve still been weight lifting with some modifications, and we started a new 8-week strength program today.
Apparently, my left hip is causing the issue. She was able to manually adjust it today and gave me some exercises to do. I left her office feeling really optimistic. I hope to get a short run in on Thursday to test it out.
Besides that, the last two days have been a blur.
Yesterday, The Teen had an early appointment I needed to take him to, which required me to drive halfway to work, then back home to drop him off at school, and then back to work I went. I needed to shift my training session at the gym to the end of the day, and I hated it. I’ve been working out first thing in the morning for nearly twelve years now! At first, I hated that too, but you do what you gotta do when you have young kids. Now, however, the habit is set. I am an early morning person through and through.
Except… I’m also a night owl who tends to stay up too late–I say as I type this at 9 pm, not ready to call it a day.
Sleep is too important, however, so I’ll share a few photos, and then I’m out.
That’s a giant burrito bowl, and it was delicious! It’s a layer of bagged garden salad, topped with a bit of white rice, then peppers and onions, grilled chicken thigh pieces, a whole made pico, and half a baby avocado.
And this guy helped me make it…
It was his night to help with dinner and he did an amazing job!
