Pain in the…

On Wednesday I did some core exercises for the first time in I can’t remember how long. Not surprisingly yesterday I ached, not a huge amount but enough to feel it in my legs and arms. Though once I got out for my run I didn’t feel achey I felt strong. I felt like a proper runner going at my faster pace rather than just pootling along.

Today I had a definite ache in my left hip that didn’t go away. I noticed it on my way to work and it is still twinging now. Right up until the point I got out the door this evening I was debating if going for a run was a good idea. I have a race on Sunday I really don’t want to make it worse.

There was one silver lining though, I had noticed that it hurt more when I had been inactive for a while, so going for a run might actually do it some good. That and it is still Janathon so if I didn’t run then I would have needed to find some other form of exercise. But having read this;

No excuses. He’d promised himself that. No excuses. No excuses at all. Once you had a good excuse, you opened the door to bad excuses. – Sam Vimes, Thud!

by the amazing Terry Pratchett I wasn’t really in the mood to make excuses. So I got out there and I ran, not particularly far or fast, but I ran. Another 2 miles done. Only 9 more days to go.
