too tired to think of a clever title
~i've been ordered to NOT RUN AT ALL (no impact) for 2 weeks. well poo. i've only ran 3x since returning from WDW as it is, which comes out to once per week. a lot less than I would like.
~i will follow the orders but only until 4.10 as I am already registered and scheduled to run a 5k race that day. hopefully by then I will have enough relief that i'll be able to run comfortably.
~the doc said it's a "biomedical" issue, at least I think that's the word she used. and that basically means that likely my legs are too strong for my pelvic area which in turn causes an excess in torq or friction or something (I guess I should have written this all down) which then causes the pain. maybe it was "biomuscular"...ugh, cannot remember.
~i've been given/assigned exercises to do. i've been prescribed anti-inflammatory meds and muscle relaxers (yay me!) and have a physical therapy appointment next tuesday.
~i've never had back issues before and so the only thing I can think of is that even though I waited 5 days to run after the WDW 1/2 and felt fine, my body wasn't entirely recovered and the result is the injury. since the 1/2 was the one and only time I ever ran that far, i guess this makes sense.
~it totally stinks having tons of motivation to run & then not being able to. honestly, i've never had this problem before...the too much motivation one, that is.
