I need a little help…I’m at a point where I don’t know what to do.
You know I ran a half marathon October 1st? And you know I said I was going to run another one on Sunday? Well…my hip that I really thought had stopped hurting returned with excruciating pain on Tuesday that allowed me to run just 2 miles about a minute and thirty seconds slower than normal and feeling like I was actually trying…it was terrible. And now my leg hurts again.
So I can’t get in to a doctor until Monday (after the race…) to make sure that it isn’t a stress fracture or bone problems, and I have to make the decision of whether to run it and hope things clear up by Sunday or sit it out…and I’m so upset about it. Like, tears…upset. And even thinking about GU and ice baths and fuel makes me sad. Because I want to be okay. Because I was training SO. WELL. for this race. I mean, I was going to break 2 hours, and it’s tearing me up that I’ve barely been able to run at all in the last two and a half weeks. What to do. Anyone have hip problems in the past and can help? I ran 6 this past Sunday and was only a little sore after…I guess it took two days to catch up to me. I want to run!! 🙁
I’m so torn up…
