I jogged a 1/2 mile today.
It wasn't hard. It was easy. It was hard to not keep going. But I stopped, like a good girl. I wanted more though.
I've missed running so much. My first run after having the baby and C-section I overdid it because I was so excited to be running and I pulled my piriformis muscle. This is a common injury for those running who aren't conditioned. The pirimormis muscle is in your butt and (ignore the french) is a pain in the A$$! It is a muscle that touches the sciatic nerve and sometimes the nerve even goes through it. Anyway, it has made even walking sometimes impossible. But today I jogged a half mile and I'm proud. I'm so happy to be back.
If any of you ever have this problem, let me know. I've learned a lot of good stretches that help the muscle so it doesn't pull on your nerve and cause so much pain.
Anyway, I've missed you all. And now I can join back in the chat. It ain't much...but still. I'm so pleased. I never realized how much I missed running until I had to stop myself tonight. I really wanted more!
