    alright bike trainer 00:30

    Legs were sore from my Friday run (read "out-of-shape"). I think of this activity as trying not to lose my fitness altogether! Hoping to get to the chiropractor again on Wednesday.

  2. RUN
    injured around town 4 mi

    My first run in about a month. My lower back has been feeling better (that's why I took a break), so I was hopeful, but by about 1.5 miles in, I could feel the same pain, so I jogged and walke... read more

      Tuesdays are a complete train wreck for us -- jobs, park and rec. and piano lessons! I don't see that changing for a while. Feel free to discuss me as a case study.... I guess I have to try the chiro again, but I (my back) didn't adjust well the last time I was there. That's why I took a break on running. Thanks for the encouragement! I'll keep trying!

      Way to fight through & push yourself both mentally & physically. I truly believe 90% of running is mental (and i need to work on that!) Nice run!!!!

    alright pre-breakfast run 00:30

    Still some twinges of pain in my R lower back (sciatic). When they occur, I just walk for a minute and then start again. Should I stop running until the pain leaves?

      How is that hip feeling?

      Oh, thanks for asking. I have not recorded any of my runs since Saturday! The hip must have had several issues because, although it does feel better in places, the sciatic is still giving me pain -- small electrical pains right at the sciatic area in my lower back. I'm not sure if running (though I'm not exerting myself at all) is helping or making it worse.... By the way, I don't think this is from running. The pain started right after I had had a trip over some uneven cement--it was quite jarring.

    alright pre-breakfast run 00:30

    Hard to get started this morning. I could even see my breath! A few 1 min. walks thrown into the first 1/2; felt looser the 2nd half. Nothing intense -- just moving. Stretching at home afterwards.

  11. RUN
    alright around town 01:00

    Mixed in some walking in the first 1/2. The second 1/2 felt much better. The R hip/bum/lower back is still stiff/sore, but seems to be easing a little.

      The ab portion is recommended (daily) by my chiropractor. I just threw in the other stuff to keep me moving for 30 min. I'm aiming for 30 min. of something on M-TH, with a run M & W, and other fitness T & TH. I believe the key to getting up early is...going to bed early! I'm so trying. Thanks for the encouragement!

      Mornings are tough, I agree. Is there someone near you, that you can meet with? Or I have even found it helpful to txt someone else I know who is up (maybe they are up early for work) to help hold you accountable for getting out there. Good luck!
