Physical therapy for the WIN!

The comeback is mounting! I have been virtually pain free for most of the weekend. And by pain free, I mean bursitis pain free. My glutes and my hamstrings are definitely not pain free. BUT…they are sore…just like they should be. Oh, how I missed the regular ole soreness of hard worked muscles!!

My PT appointment on Friday went great. She gave me a bunch of new exercises including several variations of bridge. I also get to walk sideways on the treadmill to increase endurance in my glutes and hip flexors. It burns so good. I’m also doing some balance exercises. All of this PT is teaching me that I need to get back to PiYo and Yoga.

I’m kind of at a loss where to go with my training plan. I ran 3 miles on Saturday. It was tough. I am not completely out of shape, but I am far from where I was a month ago. I’m running the Prairie Fire 5K on Sunday, and then I’m planning on running back and forth around the finish line to find friends who are finishing the half. I’m hoping for a total of 6+ miles. I still want to run the Bill Snyder Highway Half on May 21st, but I’m not sure I’ll be ready. If I can squeeze one 10 miler in before the race, I’d feel a lot better, but I’m not sure how soon my hip will be ready for that!

In other news, I swam yesterday and it didn’t completely suck! I will get into triathlon shape yet. I just need to put my nose to the grindstone and get back on a training plan.

Happy Monday and Stay Neon!!
