Sad Drum Roll………still freaking injured!

I feel like I am a sounding like a broken record. I’ve been injured for FOUR months – this is by far, the L-O-N-G-E-S-T I have ever had an injury – EVER!

It’s beyond frustrating and I am at a complete lost for what to do……..other then go back to see my family Doctor in three weeks (that’s the earliest I could get in) and see what I should do next. For now, I see the Osteopath tomorrow – thank goodness and I might be stuck running on my treadmill for life.

Last week’s workouts:

Note: PT exercises, foam rolling and stretching are a constant. I plank a few days a week. 

Sunday: 5k easy treadmill run – it was great.

Treadmill run 🙂

 

Monday: Woke up with a bruised feeling on my hamstring only later that night to find the actual bruise. I had no pain other then the bruise feeling.

Tuesday: 6k treadmill run – really good run.

Wednesday: Nothing

Thursday: 8 minute warm up walk before resetting my treadmill then “LUBE BELT” appeared. The friggin’ thing won’t work until you lube it up…so I did. And if you remember the last time I touched the belt….well, I couldn’t get it fixed. Needless to say my treadmill is still looking like this………

Friday: 5k run outside…it was lovely…just awesome. I even managed my first sub 30 – 5k {29:18} for the year! The run was great, my legs felt good (hamstring fine), my lungs were challenged with the cool air, the three long hills kicked by butt however I managed to run up them and not walk.

An awesome 5k run at night.

It was like OLD time running. Hard but good. I loved the fresh air and just being outside.

Saturday/Sunday – NOTHING because I was in a lot of pain with my hamstring. I’m almost ready to give up BUT……..I have another Osteopath appointment on Tuesday. PLUS, I am seeing results since my last Osteopath appointment. I no longer have pain when sitting in a chair. I only noticed this last week after 2 hours of sitting. I looked at the time and realized that I should get up and move around, THEN noticed that I had no pain – so that’s a BIG WIN for now.

I’m home sick today – stomach bug that I’m hoping the girls don’t get. It would have been a perfect day to go for a run but after a 2 hour morning nap I’m thinking I might just go for a short walk. Just enough to get some sunshine on my face and fresh air into my lungs. Then catch up on Boston!

I guess for my running, I’m thinking no running or at least no running over 3-4k outside on hills is out of the question for me for a while. I may just have my first DNS on the weekend and I can’t even begin to think about running the Bluenose 10k that I registered for in May.

How was your weekend?

Are you watching BOSTON today? (so exciting)

A little shout out to Heather at Girl Goes Running. Good luck girl! 

What’s the longest time you’ve been injured?
