3/2/2008 Pain in my Ass............literally


I headed out today to run 10 miles in the 30-something MPH wind and it was really rough. The wind would gust up to 40 MPH and blow me into the bar ditch from time to time which was no fun at all. Also something is hurting in my hip and has been the last several times I've gone out to run! I haven't mentioned it here simply because if I ignore it, it will go away. Yeah, right! The pic shows where it's hurting, so if anyone knows what could be causing it, LET ME KNOW! (And NO, it's not really a picture of MY ass!) It's not a bad pain, just kind of nagging. It's definitely not in the joint itself which is good, maybe just a ligament or a muscle of some sort. I have a call in to my massage therapist so I can get in to see him today and see if he can fix it. He can do pretty amazing things to fix my beat-up body. He always just laughs at me when I come in with all of my various aches and pains but then proceeds to fix them. In light of this nagging thing and my lack of training over the last couple of weeks I am going to take myself out of the running at Grasslands. I believe that it would be a waste of my time to even try right now. I think I will be better served to get my ass fixed and train for the next race on my agenda, Jemez Mtn. 50 miler. What do you guys think?
